The Chemistry program prepares you for industrial or government laboratory work or graduate work in chemistry or biochemistry. The Chemistry emphasis provides a strong foundation if you want to enter the professional health fields, especially the pre-professional programs such as pre-medical, pre-dental, pharmacy and medical technology. The Geochemistry emphasis couples a solid foundation in analytical chemistry with the deductive thinking skills, three-dimensional visualization skills, and fundamental understanding of earth materials that the earth sciences offer. Students graduating with this major are prepared for careers in the geo-technical industry as well as continuing their education in a graduate program in the environmental earth sciences. Students may also complete courses required for secondary teaching certification.
