Chemistry, B.S. - Pre-Health

The BS in Chemistry with a Pre-Health concentration is meant for students who have an interest in pursuing a career in professional health fields (e.g., medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, physician assistant, pharmacy, and optometry). The program provides a strong foundation in STEM, which is required to enter these fields. The program contains the most common pre-requisite entrance courses to apply to professional health programs. The program will also provide a well-rounded chemistry degree which will allow students in this program to choose other career opportunities in traditional chemistry jobs/industries if they decide not to pursue a career in professional health fields. Students are required to maintain a GPA of 3.0 and above to remain competitive in applying to professional health programs. Students are required to take several Biology courses along with their Chemistry curriculum, allowing the student to work towards a Biology minor in addition to their Chemistry major. Students take course(s) in the five sub-disciplines of chemistry: Organic, Inorganic, Analytical, Physical, and Biochemistry in this concentration.
