A versatile program that meets your needs
Chemistry is often referred to as “The Central Science” because it plays a pivotal role in many areas of science and technology. Chemists often work in teams at the interface with other science and engineering disciplines in a broad range of industries, for example, pharmaceuticals, batteries, solar cells, biotechnology, forensics, polymers, food, and semi-conductors. Chemistry is a strong preparation for graduate school. Job prospects for chemists are excellent with typical unemployment rates for chemists about half the national average!
A Bachelor of Science degree features two tracks, each with a chemistry core and a selection of accompanying options. Each B.S. degree is customized with an option (detailed below).
We also offer a Bachelor of Arts degree for chemistry students interested in a broad education that includes a second language and may lead to international opportunities, especially if coupled with the International Degree Program at OSU.
