Combined Bachelor of Arts with a Major in Chemistry and Master of Science in the Field of Environmental and Green Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry offers a combined bachelor of science with a major in chemistry and master of science in the field of environmental and green chemistry degree program. The program allows students to take a specified number of graduate credits as part of their undergraduate degree, thereby decreasing the number of credits normally required for the master's degree.
The BS/MS program is designed to provide students with a broad background in the basic divisions of chemistry: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, and physical, as well as an interdisciplinary curriculum that addresses evaluating the state of our environment and developing/assessing greener technologies that have positive potential environmental impact. The program’s focus on environmental chemistry is synergistic with that of green chemistry, which requires the design of new chemicals and chemical processes with minimal environmental impact.
Interested students should consult the Department of Chemistry in their sophomore year.
