Chemistry, B.S.


About the Degree

Arcadia’s Chemistry programs provide a working knowledge of the concepts that underlie chemical and physical phenomena. Each course develops the ability to solve real scientific problems quantitatively using structural models, mechanisms and the integrated application of physicochemical principles. Technological and cultural scientific problems—such as environmental pollution, energy resources and conservation of natural resources—are explored, along with material in astronomy, geology, chemistry and physics.

Bachelor of Science recipients are certified by the American Chemical Society as having met that society’s high standards for an undergraduate degree in chemistry.
