Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Chemistry

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry provides classroom and laboratory learning opportunities and research experiences designed to meet the needs of students who wish to pursue careers or graduate studies in chemistry or related disciplines (e.g., medicine, pharmacy, dentistry).

A Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in chemistry requires 120 credits, with 54 to 56 credits within the major (see Sample Plan).

Students graduating with a B.A. degree in chemistry generally plan to pursue other areas such as law, library science, technical writing, public relations, or sales. Additionally, this major provides a strong foundation for students planning to go to professional schools such as medical or pharmacy school. Like all other majors, B.A. students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research. For additional information and general requirements for graduation, please visit the University Catalog.
