Why Major in Chemistry?

The BS in Chemistry at Eastern University provides students with foundational knowledge of both classic and innovative theory and also prepares them with necessary chemistry laboratory skills. Students take general and organic chemistry courses in small classroom and laboratory settings, as well as upper-level courses in, e.g., instrumental analysis, quantum chemistry, industrial chemistry, and advanced organic chemistry.

Chemistry students have the opportunity to work alongside faculty in on- and off- campus research, or to intern in local Philadelphia, across the country, and around the world. Upon graduation, students are prepared to enter graduate or medical school, or to pursue careers in chemistry research, forensics, chemical industry, medical technology, information technology, and education.

“Eastern’s small class sizes allowed me to develop strong relationships with my professors. My passion for nuclear forensics and nuclear energy grew, and my eyes were opened to a field that I never even thought could be a potential career path. I have learned that you should pursue what excites you in life; you never know where God will lead you.”
