The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is a Purdue University degree offered in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.
Transfer Single Articulation Pathway (TSAP) degree programs at IUPUI allow students at Ivy Tech Community College and Vincennes University to earn an associate degree in a specified field and then transfer to IU with junior status to complete a bachelor's degree in the same field.
With a chemistry degree from IUPUI, you'll be ready to take on the world, whether as a research chemist in industry or academia or in fields such as medicine and law where the analytical and technical skills you learn as a chemistry major are highly valued.
You'll be a part of a supportive environment with innovative teaching methods such as Peer-led Team Learning (PLTL), which provides a unique opportunity to become a leader by teaching others. Through mentoring programs like PLTL, you can expand your subject knowledge while developing the team-building, leadership and problem-solving skills that will be an asset wherever your major takes you.
Our chemistry majors often cross over into other fields with great success. It’s easy to double-major to create the best academic path to meet your future goals.
Undergraduate students are encouraged to do research that allows them to work one-on-one with world renowned faculty in a laboratory environment as early as the freshman year! Students who do research benefit from personal attention, and our faculty assist with academic and career advising.
The Bachelor of Science prepares students for graduate study, careers as research chemists, or admission to profession schools, like medical school.
