Chemistry (B.S.)

UNO’s chemistry program will test your mettle through a rigorous curriculum that follows the guidelines of the American Chemical Society (ACS). In our program, you may select one of five concentrations—biochemistry, chemical physics, forensics, materials, and medicinal chemistry—all of which are individualized to your specific needs. You will also have a research requirement that allows you to get hands-on experience in biochemistry, medicinal chemistry, or materials chemistry as early as your freshman year. You may even be asked to attend a regional or national meeting to present the results of your research.

Your degree will qualify you for an industrial career, professional school, or graduate programs in chemistry. Best of all, UNO’s chemistry B.S. meets all of the certification requirements of the ACS, which will increase your chances of higher pay, greater job selection, and quicker advancement in the industry.

With the excellent grounding in both theory and research that our program provides, the choice is yours.
