Undergraduate Program

  • The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Chemistry is available in six areas of emphasis:  Professional (ACS approved); Biochemistry; Polymer Chemistry; Pre-Medicine; Environmental Chemistry; and Pharmaceutical Chemistry. The Professional emphasis is an Ameri­can Chemi­cal Society approved degree plan.  This degree plan is designed to prepare students for professional careers.

  • The Bachelor of Science in Polymer Chemistry is designed for the student desiring to prepare for high level positions in polymer related industry or research and/or for successful application to graduate programs nationally or world-wide.

Master's Program

We also have an active graduate program and offer Master of Science degrees in

  • Chemistry - The Master of Science degree with a major in Chemistry is available in two options.  Option I, a thesis program, is designed to prepare students for advanced professional careers as chemists in research or industrial settings, or to continue graduate study at PhD granting universities..  The Option II program is designed to prepare students for advanced technical positions in chemistry, chemical technolo­gy or chemical related industry.

  • Polymer Chemistry - The Master of Science Degree with a Major in Polymer Chemistry provides graduate students access to cutting-edge knowledge, research, and laboratory-based experience in the field of polymer chemistry. Students completing this program will be prepared for careers in high-tech polymers-based industries as well as laboratories in academic institutions, government, and private research settings. Further, this program prepares students for advanced academic study pursuing a doctorate in polymer science in major U.S. and world universities.

For a complete description of Chemistry courses offerings and a detailed listing of required courses for each emphasis, see the Chemistry section in the PSU Catalog.

Accelerated Masters Programs

For students interested in advanced preparation and training in chemistry for work in industry or further study in graduate school, the Department of Chemistry at Pittsburg State University offers an accelerated program to combine the Bachelor of Science degree and the Master of Science degree into a five-year program. Students participating in this program can save one year of study and can either proceed directly into the workforce or into a doctoral program at another university.
