Degrees and Programs

Chemistry serves students who wish to prepare themselves for industrial work or graduate study in chemistry as well as those who wish to satisfy the science requirements in the University Core Curriculum for the baccalaureate degree; to meet pre-professional requirements in many fields such as medicine, dentistry, engineering, pharmacy, and nursing; or to fulfill the requirements in chemistry for certification as secondary school teachers in the state of Indiana. Professional and pre-professional programs are designed to develop a strong background in the basic areas of chemistry.

Biochemistry provides students the opportunity to earn an interdisciplinary baccalaureate degree separate from the currently existing degrees in chemistry and biology. Biochemistry involves the scientific study of the chemistry of living systems their fundamental chemical substances and reactions their chemical pathways and information transfer systems with reference to carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids.
