Marie Curie’s Nobel Prize winning work, isolation of the element radium, took place in a poorly roofed, unheated potting shed. Imagine if Madame Curie, and other chemical pioneers such as Antoine Lavoisier or Alfred Nobel, had access to the cutting-edge tools and equipment found in today’s laboratories. While we can only dream about what the ancestors of modern chemistry could do with twenty-first century scientific knowledge and advancements, it can be a reality for you in our program. The curriculum, certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS), allows students to study fundamental areas of chemistry while tailoring their degrees to produce a well-rounded educational experience. Students may pursue tailored tracks toward the BS in Chemistry, including those allowing specialization in: biochemistry, business, polymers, and materials options. In addition, great opportunities for undergraduate research and co-op assignments are available. Degree tracks in biochemistry, business, polymers, and materials allow a student to focus their studies on a particular area of interest.
