Behind the scenes in almost any area–medicine, transportation, agriculture, the environment, computing, entertainment, law, psychology, and the arts–is an army of chemists and chemical technicians who help prepare materials, analyze evidence, create new substances, and answer the "What is it?" questions that are presented each day. They help clean the environment, cure the ill, convict the guilty, and keep us fed, clothed, sheltered, and healthy. And we will continue to need more of these kinds of services to help clean our environment, defeat the next epidemic, and improve our energy efficiency

The B.S. in Chemistry includes a broad selection of courses in the sciences and in mathematics that provides an excellent background for careers in a wide range of fields, or as preparation for professional schools, especially medicine (including dentistry and pharmacy).

Upon completion of the series of courses prescribed by American Chemical Society guidelines, students may be certified as professional chemists and awarded the American Chemical Society Certificate in Chemistry.
