Bachelor of Science

This program is designed to provide the student with a strong foundation in chemistry, including a solid theoretical background as well as broad exposure to experimental techniques and current instrumentation. Upon successful completion of this program, a student will be prepared for entry level positions in chemistry-related industries and to pursue advanced degrees in a variety of scientific areas, such as medical/dental/veterinary school.

To complete the chemistry major, a minimum of 120 credits is required, the last 30 of which must be earned at La Roche College. The required course work consists of:

  • 46 chemistry component credits(2 of which must be in seminar)
  • 19 science component credits
  • 34 CORE credits
  • 21 general elective credits

NOTE: students choosing this major as preparation for medical/dental/veterinary school are advised to take the courses shown under that category below as chemistry or general electives.
