Chemistry (Environmental Chemistry) (BS)

The BS in chemistry with an environmental chemistry concentration is a transdisciplinary degree program that combines training in the traditional disciplines of chemistry with related environmental sciences courses from geology, mathematics and physics. Discoveries of new materials, processes and solutions to problems such as pollution control and climate change depend upon a thorough grounding in this area of science.

This program prepares students to become scientists and leaders in solving environmental problems and serves as excellent preparation for a career in environmental science or further study of physical sciences in graduate school.
