Chemistry

Design. Create. Produce.

Chemists create the fabric of our everyday lives (sometimes literally), contributing to the production of chemicals, materials, and products. You’ll be prepared to contribute to the nucleus of chemical advancements in diverse fields.

Choose from either a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Chemistry at Michigan Tech.

As a BA major, you’ll earn a liberal arts degree that provides you with a foundation in the chemical sciences while also allowing you to pursue other interests such as law, business, or pre-health. The BA program offers a concentration in pre-pharmacy.

As a BS major, you'll learn in a practical laboratory setting to prepare you for the real-world applications of chemistry. The BS program allows you to specialize your studies with concentrations in environmental chemistry, biochemistry, polymer chemistry, or chemical physics.

In either program, you'll start research as soon as you're ready. Get familiar with labs and instrumentation. Create products and work with companies on the Consumer Products Manufacturing Enterprise Team. You can also earn a master’s in one additional year through the Accelerated Master’s program.
