Chemistry is the study of the properties of matter and the ways in which matter interacts. combines and changes. It is inherently interdisciplinary in nature, with connections to the life sciences, geology, physics and mathematics. 

The Chemistry major consists of a set of core chemistry, physics, and mathematics courses plus a flexible selection of upper level courses. This allows students to explore topics of interest and prepare for a wide range of graduate programs, careers and professions. All Chemistry majors will develop strong laboratory skills and have experience with state-of-the-art scientific instrumentation.

(The BS in Chemistry cannot be combined with a BS in Biology or BS in Environmental Science.)

BS in Chemistry with a Concentration in Environmental Chemistry

The Environmental Chemistry concentration prepares students for careers and advanced studies in analytical chemistry, environmental remediation and engineering, laboratory positions, and other environmentally relevant fields. This concentration provides a more theoretical background than the Environmental Science major.
