Chemistry is a dynamic, extremely creative, and yet also a practical discipline. The study of chemistry provides students with the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are necessary for success in many careers. A study in chemistry is the pathway to multiple options. These options range from a career in education, law, forensics, medicine, biotechnology, environmental protection, technical sales, semiconductors, and industrial chemical production. The potential is limitless. The chemistry program at The University of New Hampshire is small enough to be personal, but broad enough to provide excellent opportunities for challenge and growth.

Besides a strong program of study, BA & BS students have state-of-the-art research opportunities with tenured and tenure-track faculty. BS students gain additional research experiences in their Senior Thesis capstone courses, a yearlong research project. Students have access to newly renovated laboratories for course labs and research. Upon graduation, Chemistry majors pursue careers in industry, attend graduate school, or find success in a variety of professional programs where they may study medicine, pharmacology, dentistry, veterinary medicine, business, or law.
