Program Descriptions


Bachelor of Arts--Chemistry
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry is intended for those who are interested in chemistry, but with less emphasis in chemistry than the Bachelor of Science degree.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Janet Rogers

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry is intended for those who expect to pursue a graduate degree in chemistry or a related science or to enter business or industry as a chemist. It also serves as an excellent pre-medical program.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Janet Rogers

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry-Forensic Sciences
The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry - Forensic Science is intended for those who seek entry level positions with FBI, state police or crime laboratories. Graduates also qualify for positions as trace evidence technicians with various law enforcement agencies. There is evidence that laboratories dealing with the investigation of criminal acts are moving toward hiring employees who are trained more as scientists than as police investigators. There is a large employment opportunity for individuals who have the appropriate training.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry/Industrial Biochemistry prepares students to become a part of the rapidly expanding biotechnology industries or to pursue further study in biochemistry.

Faculty Advisor: Dr. Lisa Unico

Bachelor of Science-Secondary Education-Chemistry
The Department of Educational Services provides prospective teacher candidates with the essential professional education courses as well as carefully planned experiences in public schools to enable them to successfully enter the world of the professional educators in our public schools.

Pre-Pharmacy Transfer Program
(2+3 yrs. program agreement with LECOM)
The Pre-pharmacy transfer program provides the first two years of study towards a Doctor of Pharmacy degree (PharmD). This curriculum was originally designed in cooperation with the Temple University School of Pharmacy, but is appropriate for transfer to most colleges of pharmacy. Because certain schools of pharmacy may require slight variations, early contact with the pre-pharmacy advisor and your chosen pharmacy school is recommended.
A minimum of 71 semester hours is required for transfer, including completion of the courses listed below. In most colleges of pharmacy, completion of the PharmD will require four additional years of study.

Program Director and Faculty Advisor: Dr.Naod Kebede
