Students are provided with a solid understanding of chemical principles, the use of modern instrumentation, the design of experiments, and the ability to analyze data and present results.

Students are encouraged to refine their skills by engaging in research. Many chemistry majors have opportunities to work as research assistants on faculty projects or to conduct their own independent projects.

ACS Certified Majors

Students who want to add depth to their programs may pursue an American Chemical Society (ACS)-certified major in either chemistry or environmental chemistry. Students who complete these majors are registered with the ACS and have the certification recorded on their official University credentials.
