  • Course description

    Chemistry major
    The core major provides a firm background for entry into the chemistry job market, for advanced study in the discipline, for advanced study in a related discipline, or a foundation for various professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, law or library science.

    Successful graduates
    Our majors have been very successful in gaining entrance to graduate and professional programs and in obtaining jobs in the chemical industry or in secondary education. The vast majority are in positions for which their experiences at Alfred are an essential prerequisite.

    American Chemical Society approved degree

    The ACS-approved degree requires the core major plus six additional credit hours. Students completing the additional credits will be certified to ACS upon graduation and are immediately eligible to join ACS. Students who intend to pursue graduate studies in chemistry or who desire a nationally certified degree should consider the additional course work.

    Major Requirements
