Chemistry is concerned with the composition, properties and reactions of matter. The BA program in chemistry provides the fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to address scientific needs of society in transdisciplinary areas such as energy and sustainability, medicine and health, materials and nanoscience, geologic and biospheric science, frontiers of chemical measurement and fundamental molecular science.
The Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry is a flexible option for students interested in a liberal arts degree with a strong grounding in physical science. It is ideal for students seeking to complete two degrees. Students pursuing a bachelor's degree in chemistry have opportunities to explore interests in analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry as well as biochemistry, geochemistry, solid-state and materials chemistry. Students wishing to pursue a scientific graduate degree should consider the BS in chemistry.
