Chemistry and Biochemistry

The chemistry and biochemistry department offers a broad and flexible curriculum leading to a variety of degrees and options: The ACS-certified Bachelor of Science (BS) in chemistry, with an available biochemistry option; the Bachelor of Science (BS) in chemistry — premedicine; and the biochemistry field major (BS), all include undergraduate research ( CHEM 669 or CHEM 690) which satisfies the WSU applied learning requirement. Also available are the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in chemistry; and chemistry/business field major (BS). Students should consult a chemistry advisor for assistance in choosing the most appropriate degree program.

All programs require additional courses to satisfy general education curriculum requirements and the graduation requirements in Fairmount College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.


All students pursuing one of the above degrees should consult closely with the department of chemistry and biochemistry in planning their program.
