Chemical Science, B.S.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: List of Majors, Minors, Certificates and Special Programs

The Department of Chemistry offers a program which leads to the BS degree in Chemical Science. This program is intended primarily for those students who wish to make use of chemical knowledge in connection with a career in the business world, e.g., in sales or marketing, or in secondary education. The course requirements in chemistry and mathematics are less than those of the BS in Chemistry program. The hours thus released are made available as free elective hours which can then be applied to courses in accounting, business administration, economics, education, etc.
