Chemistry-Business, BS


The Chemistry-Business major combines theoretical and technical instruction in chemistry with management training in business. Graduates of this program will be concerned not only with chemical research and technological development but also with management problems in science-related industries.

Most Chemistry majors tend to be research-oriented although almost half of the approximately 100,000 chemists employed in American private industry are engaged in work other than research and development: management, marketing and sales. This combined degree was formulated to prepare chemists to assume these latter responsibilities.

From the point of view of the business student, almost one-third of all business graduates can expect to be employed in a chemistry-related field: pharmaceuticals, plastics, petroleum, etc. Most Business majors employed in such industries must develop, often on their own, the technical knowledge needed to understand their company’s operations and products. A fundamental background in chemistry as provided in this concentration is a distinct advantage to individuals planning such careers.

1The department recommends foreign language.

2 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement. Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester. Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102/102L . In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced. Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
