The curriculum provides a broad base of knowledge in traditional areas of chemical endeavor, specifically analytical, inorganic, organic, physical, and biochemistry. Course work and experimental design experience prepare students for industrial and government laboratory employment, as well as for further education in graduate or professional school. Non-major courses offer opportunities to explore the significance of chemistry in everyday life and provide a basis for subsequent science-related courses in the elementary education, nursing, and nutrition sciences programs.
