The Bachelor of Science degree is for those who wish to emphasize their study of chemistry.
Students interested in chemical engineering can participate in the Engineering Dual-Degree Program. Chemical Engineering students complete either a B.A. or B.S. degree in Chemistry at NWU and any remaining engineering program requirements at one of our participating schools of engineering.
For students interested in studying pre-health, a program of study emphasizing a strong background in chemistry is available for students planning a future in medicine.

An approved supporting program of 27 hours selected from biology, computer science, modern languages, mathematics, and physics is required and may include one or more minors. PHYS 1600 Principles of Physics I or PHYS 2000 General Physics I, PHYS 1700 Principles of Physics II or PHYS 2100 General Physics II, MATH 1600 Calculus I and MATH 1610 Calculus II are required.
**This Chemistry major earns a B.S. degree. However, if a student has a first major that is associated with a different baccalaureate degree, the Chemistry major may serve as a second major for the degree associated with the first major (B.FA., B.M., B.S.N.). Note that if the first major is associated with a B.A. degree, there are different Chemistry major requirements for a B.A. degree.
