A bachelor's degree is an undergraduate degree that is offered by universities and colleges when students complete a program of study. Most bachelor courses last three or four years with some lasting up to seven years.

Chemistry is often referred to as the central science because it seems to unify the other branches of natural science together, including biology, geology, and physics. Many believe the origins of chemistry to be traced back several thousands of years, to the practice of alchemy.

From indigenous civilizations to modern day empires, North America has plenty of hands-on educational opportunities to offer scholars. Filled with a range of distinct cultures, students can educate themselves in well-rounded way.

General Information

The diversity in academic background and experiences of the Chemistry faculty members and their commitment to high-quality education give the Southwestern Oklahoma State University chemistry major a competitive edge for success. Each area of specialization is taught by an instructor with a Ph.D. in that area such as organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, biochemistry, or physical chemistry. The small class and laboratory sizes allow extensive class discussions and one-on-one interactions with the instructor. Students have ample opportunities to ask their instructor questions.

Laboratory experience is essential for a well-prepared chemist. The Chemistry program at SWOSU emphasizes this side of chemical education through a variety of laboratory classes, each taught by a Ph.D. chemist. Junior and senior students working on either BS degree option select a research project under the direction of a chemistry professor. This allows one-on-one instruction on projects of current scientific interest. Students will gain experience not only in traditional chemistry techniques but will also have an opportunity to operate modern scientific instrumentation. Selected laboratory experiments are interfaced directly to computers for convenient data collection and manipulation.... [-]

Bachelor in Chemistry

“The synthesis of molecules puts chemistry very close to the arts. We create the objects that we or others then study or appreciate.”

– Roald Hoffmann

Chemistry allows us to understand the way atoms and molecules behave and how those behaviors lead to everything we know and love. It is the study of matter and all of the changes that matter can undergo. Chemistry majors strive to understand diverse phenomena from a molecular point of view.

About the Majors

OWU offers two distinct majors in chemistry to meet the educational and career goals of students.

Basic Chemistry prepares you to enter various positions in the chemical industry, enter some graduate programs, and to teach high school chemistry. ACS-Certified Chemistry meets the recommendations of the American Chemical Society Committee on Professional Training. By completing this major, you will be certified by the American Chemical Society. ACS-certified majors are particularly attractive to industry. With the more extensive curricular development of this major, students are also better prepared for graduate study in chemistry and for industrial research. This major is strongly recommended for students pursuing a career in chemistry. Chemistry Major (B.A.) ... [-]

The Wabash College Chemistry Department believes in a challenging curriculum, which thoroughly investigates all areas of modern chemistry and in a significant hands-on laboratory experience in which students become progressively more independent as they proceed through the curriculum. We believe that such an education will prepare chemistry majors for a variety of career outcomes, including those in research, medicine, teaching, and industry.

In recent years, three-fourths of our majors have gone to graduate school in chemistry/ biochemistry or to medical school following graduation. Others have chosen to take jobs as chemists or high school teachers or to attend other professional schools (business, law, and physical therapy). We strive to provide chemistry minors and pre-medical students with the knowledge base they need to succeed in their chosen fields.... [-]
