Degree Awarded: Students typically obtain a B.S. in Chemistry, Pharmaceutical Sciences Track or a B.S.

You鈥檒l learn from and work directly with our highly-rated faculty in classes with low student-to-faculty ratios. In addition to your program-related courses and hands-on training, you鈥檒l receive personalized guidance from advisors on classes, work opportunities and more.
