Chemistry is referred to as the “central science” because it connects the physical, life, and applied sciences. Our majors use math, theory, experimentation, critical thinking and analytical skills to study matter. A degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry will prepare you for a career in a wide range of fields, both traditional and non-traditional.
- The Citadel Chemistry Department offers a fully accredited Bachelors of Science degree in both Chemistry and Biochemistry.
- Additionally, the department offers a Bachelors of Arts degree as well as an Environmental & Clinical track.
- These degree tracks are approved by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education. This rigorous option is highly valued by both employers and graduate schools.
- All seniors have the opportunity to participate in a yearlong independent research project with a faculty mentor. Many students choose to get involved with research earlier and can do so either on campus or through numerous external programs.
