Medicine. Plastics. Computers. The science of chemistry has played a vital role in innovation and production for nearly every man-made material or object you see.
Intrigued; why not consider a major in chemistry? Lewis University's Chemistry program prepares students with classroom knowledge and hands-on lab work.
As a student, you will learn the knowledge and skills you need to investigate complex chemical concepts. You will study complex scientific issues, from the chemical basis of life, to the negative effects of chemical pollutants.
A degree in chemistry provides excellent preparation for dental school, medical school, veterinary school, or graduate work in biochemistry, chemistry, environmental science or materials science.
The Department of Chemistry offers two degrees. The Bachelor of Science program is more challenging; it's recommended for students who plan to pursue graduate study in chemistry or biochemistry. The Bachelor of Arts program is designed for students whose professional goals are science-related, but do not require additional graduate study.
