PROGRAM MISSION - The mission of the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry is to develop students' knowledge in the five areas of chemistry (organic, inorganic, analytical, physical and biological). The program provides outstanding instruction and research opportunities for chemistry majors. The program serves to develop and train graduates who are well prepared for graduate or professional schools as well as careers in the chemical industry sector.
The Chemistry Department at Wayne State offers the BACHELOR OF ARTS degree and three types of BACHELOR OF SCIENCE degrees (BS in Chemistry, BS with an emphasis in Biochemistry, and the BS in Biochemistry and Chemical Biology). All three BS degrees require undergraduate research completed for credit as part of the degree. A chemistry advisor can help you get started in this rewarding adventure. It is also possible to earn an HONORS' DEGREE in Chemistry.
To declare a major in chemistry, begin with the University Advising Office, then see an advisor in the chemistry department for counseling and to have the necessary forms signed. A chemistry advisor is available to answer your questions, as needed, even before you officially declare your major to be chemistry.
