In 2010, Clayton State University began offering a B.S. degree in Chemistry. The chemistry major is designed to meet the admissions standards and requirements of graduate and professional programs and to prepare students for a variety of careers. Along with providing a required core of classes in chemistry, the program includes a rigorous background in physics and mathematics that will allow our students to succeed in their chosen career. Upper-level students choose chemistry electives and directed electives, allowing them to take courses that are appropriate for their career goals and/or earn a minor in another discipline. In addition, all students earning the Chemistry degree participate in experiential learning (internships or independent research projects) with faculty. As our society becomes increasingly technological, career opportunities for individuals with science degrees will continue to increase. Students majoring in chemistry can work in a number of areas, including government agencies and law enforcement. The major also prepares the student for further education in pursuit of graduate degrees or professional degrees in chemical-related fields such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, forensic science, environmental science, and many more!
The Chemistry Minor is designed to give students a deeper appreciation of chemistry and its varied applications. A minor in chemistry is an excellent opportunity for mathematics, biology, or other majors to take additional upper-level courses in chemistry and discover how chemistry relates to your major discipline. Earning a chemistry minor prepares you for a variety of careers in the sciences. The chemistry minor will supplement your major with additional hands-on skills to make you more marketable to industry. In addition, graduate schools will appreciate the additional course-work in advanced chemical topics and the experiences and knowledge gained from those classes will improve your success in professional schools.
