Undergraduate Program Overview
Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in ChemistryStudents may choose any of the four Bachelor of Science degree programs as a major course of study. The Bachelor of Science program with teacher certification is designed to train students for careers in secondary education; the Bachelor of Science program with certification by the American Chemical Society is designed to prepare students for immediate industrial employment or graduate training. The Bachelor of Science pre-medicine/pre-dentistry program is designed for students who plan careers in medicine, dentistry or veterinary science; the chemistry biochemistry and molecular biology tracks prepare students for careers in medicine or biotechnology. No chemistry course with a grade below "C" will be acceptable as credit toward a major or minor in chemistry.
