Curricula that meet the requirements for a B.S. degree plan can be tailored to individual student interests in the following areas: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. The degree plan with a concentration in biochemistry is excellent preparation for premedical or predental students or for students interested in medical research. Undergraduate research in chemistry is strongly encouraged.
