B.S. in Chemistry
The chemistry major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences prepares students for the modern scientific world by providing a blend of a strong chemistry curriculum with significant study in physics, biology, and mathematics.
The chemistry major has two tracks: a B.S. in Chemistry (non-ACS track) and a B.S. in Chemistry (ACS track). ACS stands for the American Chemical Society. Both B.S. tracks are intended for those who wish to pursue a career in chemistry-related fields or secondary education teaching and who wish to enter a graduate program in chemistry or in health-related fields such as medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, optometry, and law.
The chemistry major is offered during the day on NSU's main campus.

Speak with a faculty member in your program to determine which minor(s) can support your academic, professional, and personal goals.
