The undergraduate chemistry program at the University of North Texas strives to provide its students with a quality education in the fundamental areas of chemical knowledge, and hands on training using modern chemical instrumentation.
The BS in Chemistry degree is certified by the American Chemical Society, and is designed primarily for students planning to pursue advanced graduate studies or to seek immediate employment in a private or government chemical laboratory. UNT also offers the BS in Chemistry with Forensics Science Certificate, which combines the BS chemistry degree and Biology minor coursework requirements, plus additional formal classroom instruction in forensic chemistry, forensic microscopy and molecular biology, biomedical criminalistics and criminal investigation.
The BA in Chemistry is available for students who desire a technical degree in chemistry with a more liberal arts orientation. Students can select from three coursework options that best suit their career goals:
(i) students planning to attend graduate school;
(ii) students planning a career in chemical industry; or
(iii) students who are pre-professional Allied Health major
Undergraduate students who wish to teach in the public school system can pursue a BA in Chemistry with Teaching Certificate.
Students can earn a Minor in Chemistry by completing 20 semester hours in chemistry, including 6 hours of advanced coursework.
The undergraduate chemistry programs at the University of North Texas provide opportunities beyond formal classroom instruction. Students can perform independent research, under the guidance of a faculty mentor. Several of our undergraduate students have co-authored research publications resulting from their undergraduate research.
