Chemistry Bachelor's Program Curriculum Overview

The Stevens chemistry bachelor’s degree program is based on a solid foundation in the major core areas of chemistry which includes organic chemistry, analytical chemistry, physical chemistry, inorganic chemistry and biochemistry. Additional courses in advanced chemistry are available in those areas in which Stevens has unique strengths, such as polymer chemistry, natural products, medicinal chemistry, computational chemistry, and instrumental analysis. Research is part of the program due to its importance in preparing for a career in chemistry; it also helps develop independence in solving open-ended problems.

By the end of this program, you will be able to:

  • Solve open ended problems especially those related to chemistry and biology
  • Interpret and analyze scientific data
  • Design, construct and author original research

Sample Core Course Topics Include:
