The Bachelor of Arts degree is for those who want a core of chemistry courses with a broader background in the liberal arts.
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 20 hours is required and may include one or more minors. PHYS 1600 Principles of Physics I or PHYS 2000 General Physics I and PHYS 1700 Principles of Physics II or PHYS 2100 General Physics II and MATH 1600 Calculus I are required, and MATH 1610 Calculus II is strongly recommended.
*This Chemistry major earns a B.A. 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.S. degree, then the Chemistry major requirements for a B.S. degree must be met, or the student must earn two degrees.
