Chemistry Major (B.S.)
Chemistry Major (B.S.)
What is a Bachelor of Science in chemistry?
This comprehensive program prepares students for success as professional chemists in industry and can also serve as a strong foundation for graduate studies in chemistry or related fields like materials science and pharmaceutical sciences. The B.S. degree provides rigorous training in chemistry’s traditional sub-disciplines (analytical, inorganic, organic and physical). Students gain laboratory experience in molecular synthesis and characterization, analytical and instrumental methods, physical chemical measurements and data analysis, and spectroscopy. Students also participate in scientific inquiry (via independent advanced laboratory and research experiences), which builds the communication, critical-thinking and problem-solving skills necessary for success in many careers. Students considering graduate degrees in chemistry should consider the Bachelor of Science degree.
Why study chemistry at UNH?
You’ll engage in a program of study approved by the American Chemical Society that explores a dynamic, creative and practical discipline. You’ll find a program small enough to be personal but comprehensive enough to provide excellent opportunities for challenge and growth, like independent research, leadership and peer-mentoring. You’ll have access to newly renovated laboratories, state-of-the-art equipment and faculty committed to transformative experiences for undergraduate students. Our graduates pursue careers in industry, go on to attend M.S. and Ph.D. programs and find success in environmental and health-related professions, making public policies, patent law and intellectual property, and educating future generations of scientists.
