Major programs are offered by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in two baccalaureate degree areas: the Bachelor of Science and the Bachelor of Arts, and three master's degree areas: Master of Arts, Master of Science, and Professional Science Master's.

Students considering a baccalaureate chemistry major should complete two semesters of general chemistry, 860:044 and 860:048, in the freshman year. Well-prepared students may be permitted to take 860:070, an accelerated course in general chemistry, during their first semester. It is strongly recommended that chemistry majors complete requirements in mathematics and physics within the first two years.
