The Chemistry Major

The Department offers a B.A. degree in Chemistry that students can tailor to meet their particular interests.  Prospective Chemistry majors should choose a Chemistry faculty member as an academic advisor as soon as possible in order to prepare an appropriate study plan. 

Students, who graduate with a major in Chemistry, are expected to:

  • Comprehend the principles of all basic areas of chemistry (analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical)
  • Apply proper methodology and technique to the investigation of chemical principles through experimentation
  • Independently operate chemical instrumentation and interpret instrument outputs
  • Gain sustained, hands-on experience in the scientific research process that unifies their mastery of chemical principles and techniques with problem-solving abilities and oral and written communication proficiencies
