Undergraduate Programs

The FIU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers two undergraduate degrees in chemistry: the Bachelor of Science, B.S. and the Bachelor of Arts, B.A. The B.S. degree is certified by the American Chemical Society and provides the necessary background for those who wish to pursue graduate study in chemistry and ultimately careers in chemistry. The B.A. program is designed for students preparing for careers such as medicine, dentistry, environmental studies, veterinary medicine, patent law, secondary science education or forensic chemistry. Students who wish to pursue either degree should complement the basic curriculum with suitable electives chosen in consultation with an adviser.
