Majors and Minors
B.S. in Biochemistry
The Bachelor of Science degree program provides students with a strong scientific foundation for those interested in careers which involve laboratory research or graduate studies in the field of biochemistry. It requires at least 1 year of research experience in a lab, and culminates in a Senior Capstone project.
B.A. in Biochemistry
The Bachelor of Arts degree program provides students with those same scientific foundations, and it allows more flexibility for students who aim to pursue double majors or minors in different areas of study. The B.A. is designed for students interested in non-laboratory or health-related professions.
B.S. in Chemistry
The Bachelor of Science degree program in chemistry is certified by the American Chemical Society, providing students with a well-rounded chemical education and an edge when applying for scientific careers or graduate school for chemistry.
B.A. in Chemistry
The Bachelor of Arts degree program provides students with the same foundations in chemistry, but students can choose to focus on certain chemistry areas that suit their interests and goals. This path may be suitable for those students interested in working a field which requires chemistry, but is less research-focused.
