Major or Minor in Chemistry
Chemistry majors will understand the core principles of chemistry and be able to communicate their knowledge in the field through both writing and speaking.
ACS Chemistry Major
Students may choose to concentrate in traditional chemistry, biochemistry or neurochemistry. Having a degree in ACS Chemistry is valuable to those hoping to pursue advanced degrees.
Major in Chemistry Education
Students seeking to teach chemistry must also fulfill requirements for a major in education.
Science (K-6) | Optional add-on endorsement for chemistry education majors
General Science (5-8) | Recommended add-on endorsement for chemistry education majors
Major or Minor in Neuroscience
Neuroscience studies how the brain and nervous system acquire, process and integrate information from the environment and how this information brings about behavior of an organism.
Biochemistry surveys the chemistry and biology of the fundamental molecules of life: carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, amino acids, proteins, enzymes, vitamins and cofactors.
Neurochemistry studies the chemical and biochemical aspect of neuroscience including ligand binding, pharmacokinetics and second messenger cascades.
