A convergence of the chemical and biological sciences encompasses one of the most rapidly expanding and developing areas in science today.
Chemistry is at the center of modern technology and our department is a strong and active link to advanced technical development in key industries. The B.S. degree in Chemistry provides essential training for careers in many high-tech industries, ranging from pharmaceuticals to wearable electronics.
The B.S. degree in Biomolecular Science provides an excellent platform for careers in biotechnology and the medical and pharmaceutical industries, and a strong foundation for pre-health students, including those who are pre-med.
Both the Chemistry and Biomolecular Science programs have degree tracks: suggested paths that help students take advantage of the flexibility in the curricula by choosing courses that build a specific emphasis within their degree. Tracks include: Biomedical Science & Technology, Biomolecular Management, Medical/Professional School, Materials & Nanoscience, Environmental & Industrial Safety, and Chemical Science Management.
We also offer M.S. and Ph.D. programs in Chemistry with concentrations in analytical, biochemical, physical (theoretical), organic, and inorganic chemistry as well as materials, environmental, colloid and surface chemistry.
