Chemists are the driving force behind advancing technology. At BVU, there are two tracks available in chemistry professional and liberal arts allowing students to customize their career path or continue on to graduate or professional school.
Students who graduate with this major can pursue careers in:
BVU’s chemistry program gives students a solid base in the foundational areas of general, organic, and physical chemistry that allows them to springboard into an area of focus that appeals to them. Each student completes an undergraduate research project alongside faculty that culminates into a presentation and research paper. Many students also land internships in large research labs or clinical settings.

The Estelle Siebens Science Center
The Estelle Siebens Science Center is a state-of-the-art facility where students can learn through intimate, dynamic classes and experience chemistry firsthand. The department’s equipment includes a recently acquired nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometer and gas chromatograph/mass spectrometer (GC/MS) as well as a high quality FT-IR. Because of the size and scope of the program, institution, students have easy access to use this equipment and can learn how to apply techniques to real-world problems.
