Chemistry at Erskine
Erskine has a long tradition of excellence in chemistry. In the program, you will learn from dedicated faculty and enjoy access to the Daniel•Moultrie Science Center, including laboratory, instructional, and research areas.
Our students have participated in research, both at Erskine and at other institutions, and many have continued their education in medical school and other advanced degree programs.
Degree Details: Earn a B.S. or B.A. in Chemistry
You can choose between two tracks within the major, depending on your educational and career interests.
- The B.S. prepares you for graduate work in M.S. and Ph.D. programs, or for a career as an industrial or governmental chemist. You can further specialize the B.S. degree through a biochemistry or environmental emphasis.
- The B.A. degree is primarily designed to provide a chemistry foundation for students with a primary B.S. degree in another field. You may also choose to complete a B.A. in Chemistry with an emphasis in biochemistry.
Through your studies, you will build both technical skills and scientific knowledge that will prepare you for future studies and careers.
