Chemistry Minor

Chemistry Overview

Undergraduate Program

The Chemistry Department offers an undergraduate program with the following goals in mind:

  • to provide a variety of course offerings that are consistent with the accreditation requirements of the American Chemical Society;
  • to offer a program that will prepare students for graduate work in chemistry and related fields;
  • to provide a strong scientific background for students planning careers in health-related professions;
  • and to encourage students not majoring in science to obtain an overview of the impact of science on society.

The department offers two tracks leading to a B.A. in chemistry. The requirements for the two tracks are designed to allow students to choose their course work depending upon their ultimate career goals.
