No one can “search too far or be too well-studied in the book of God’s word or in the book of God’s works,” said Francis Bacon, who like other early scientists saw no conflict between pursuing both a life of faith and a career in science. At HU, you too can pursue both areas. A chemistry degree gives ample career opportunities for service in many fields ranging from nanotechnology to medicine.
The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in chemistry is ideal for those interested in pursuing chemistry for further study or for research.
- The B.S. degree involves coursework in the five foundational areas of chemistry (inorganic, organic, analytical, physical, and biochemistry) as well as a research component.
- Students who choose the Bachelor of Science degree take the most comprehensive program in chemistry that we offer.
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in chemistry is ideal for those wishing to obtain a foundational chemistry background in conjunction with another major or area of study.
- The B.A. degree doesn’t require as many upper-level chemistry courses or a research component, so that the student may more easily have an opportunity to take courses in other areas, especially in the junior and senior years.
- The B.A. degree, which emphasizes a broad education in the liberal arts, requires the equivalent of four semesters of a foreign language / cultural enrichment course.
Regardless of whether a student chooses to pursue a B.S. or B.A. degree, either option offers a wide variety of career opportunities, as well as a sufficient foundation for industry, graduate school, research, or further studies in medicine and the health professions.
