Chemistry Major (B.S.)

http://ceps.unh.edu/chemistry/chemistry-undergraduate-programs

This curriculum prepares students for careers requiring a thorough knowledge of chemistry and provides a strong foundation for careers in industry, professional schools (e.g., medical schools), and for graduate study in chemistry or in interdisciplinary areas. The curriculum requires a greater depth in chemistry and physics than do the other degree programs.
