The curriculum in Chemistry includes a course in general chemistry and further study in each of the 5 major fields of chemistry: analytical chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and physical chemistry.
Pfeiffer’s laboratory facilities are excellent for an undergraduate program. Furthermore, majors get experience in using all instruments.
The Chemistry major prepares students for continued study at the graduate level or for employment in the industry. The Chemistry major (like Biology) is one that may be pursued by pre-professional students who are interested in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, optometry or pharmacy. Students interested in these fields who major in Chemistry should take at least 4 courses in Biology. Completion of the bachelor’s degree in Chemistry must be followed by admission to, and successful completion of, appropriate professional studies and training.
