Undergraduate Program

The undergraduate program leads to a degree of Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. While courses have been designed to meet the accreditation standards of the American Chemical Society (ACS), they also allow students to develop a strong background in science. The Department's objective is to prepare students for advanced degrees in Chemistry, as well as other science and health fields.
