Chemistry is everywhere. It fuels our cars, grow our crops, cleans our water and cures our diseases.
If the complexity and order of chemical processes intrigues and amazes you, you might be a future chemistry major.
Our chemistry majors gain hands-on experience in the LETU labs, and our strong emphasis on undergraduate research puts our students ahead of the competition.
The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry prepares students for industrial work in chemistry, for graduate studies, or for medical school through the biology concentration and participation in the Pre-medical Program.
Industrial chemists are needed in polymer studies, air and water quality work, quality control, and research and development.

According to the American Chemical Society's Comprehensive Salary and Employment Status Survey, the average salary of a full-time chemist with a bachelor's degree was $73,850 in 2012.
However, many of our students go on to complete graduate studies or attend medical school, generally earning even higher salaries. Common career paths for LETU Chemistry graduates include:
