Why Choose the Chemistry Program?

The Bachelor of Science curriculum in Chemistry approaches students' educational endeavors with a broad, integrated, and in-depth view. Departmental requirements, combined with university core requirements and electives, offer a balanced course load for students. This provides undergraduates with the opportunity to explore where their interests in the science field will lead them.

Academics and Curriculum

The Department of Chemistry participates in the university's dual major program, providing a degree with an emphasis in Chemistry and another area of study. The basic requirements follow a curriculum of 37 credit hours of Chemistry, 8 credit hours of mathematics, 10 credit hours of physics, as well as the university's general education requirements, and must be integrated with a corresponding program from another participating department with 36 credit hours from that major.

Admission

Students must apply for admission to Wright State University.

Declaring your Major

To apply for admission in the College of Science and Mathematics, students must fill out a “Change of Major” form and declare their area of emphasis (this can be done online through WINGS Express). Often students who have declared “chemistry” as their area of interest on their Wright State admissions applications will be automatically sent to the College of Science and Mathematics from University College when entrance requirements are met. If this is not the case, students must fill out a change of major form and declare one of the following areas:

  • Chemistry (B.A.)
  • Chemistry (B.S.)
  • ACS Certified (B.S.)
  • Chemistry Education Concentration (B.S.)
  • Dual Major (B.S.)
