The Bachelor of Arts program in Chemistry is designed for students who want to gain a general background in chemistry, to prepare themselves for entry into medical, dental, osteopathic or veterinary school, or to make use of the science of chemistry in their careers. It is not intended for students preparing to be professional scientists or planning to enter graduate study in any of the chemical sciences. Typical career tracks for someone with a B.A. degree in Chemistry might involve health care, scientific writing, library science/chemical literature, journalism, patent law, sales for a technical corporation, industrial marketing/management, or the pursuit of an advanced degree in a field such as business administration, library science or law.
