Course Information

We prepare students for continuing work in chemistry, as well as provide students an understanding of the nature of materials that are common to the modern world.

General Option

  • Completion of the chemistry curriculum provides preparation for all areas of the chemical profession, as well as for graduate study in chemistry, dentistry, medicine, patent law, and teaching. Students completing the B.S. requirements graduate with a degree certified as being in a program approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society.
  • The major typically includes 56-60 credits in chemistry courses and 26-30 credits in supporting science and mathematics courses. In addition, university/college guidelines for core curriculum/distribution requirements must be fulfilled.

Forensic Science Option

  • The forensic option combines the application of physical sciences to criminal investigations, offering students the opportunity for close collaboration between the University and the community, by providing needed expertise and resources while obtaining real world experiences. This is the only forensics undergraduate degree program at a public university in Massachusetts and one of only three in New England.
  • Graduates of this program will receive an American Chemical Society certified degree in chemistry, which enhances their opportunities for a career in the chemistry and forensic science fields, with the potential for employment in the growing field of antiterrorism. 

Biochemistry Option

  • The biochemistry option prepared students for careers in biotechnology, pharmaceutical sciences and other fields that apply principles of chemistry to biological systems. It is a great degree for students who are looking to work in the biotech industry, in pharmaceutical sciences or graduate school. Our program, being certified by the American Chemical Society, has a heavy emphasis on chemical principles so it provides a great foundation for any future endeavors.
