Chemistry Degrees


For more information regarding the majors described below see the College of Arts & Sciences' Four-Year Plans. Chemistry at the University of Kentucky offers four bachelor's degrees:

  • B.S. Degree in Chemistry - Traditional
    The Department of Chemistry offers a program leading to an ACS-certified Bachelor of Science degree for students who intend to become professional chemists or do graduate work in chemistry.
  • B.S. Degree in Chemistry - Biochemistry
    The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry - Biochemistry Track is a multidisciplinary program for students who desire to enter professional health fields (including doctors and dentists), to become professional chemists and biochemists, or to do graduate work in chemistry and biochemistry. This program requires more biology and less upper level chemistry courses than the traditional B.S. Chemistry degree.
  • B.S. Degree in Chemistry - Material Science
    The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry - Materials Science Track is a multidisciplinary program for students who are interested in the design and measurement of bulk properties and the design of devices. This track requires more detailed study of functionality, properties and analysis of solid phases, crystals and interfacial chemistry than the tradition or biological tracks. This track also prepares the student for graduate study in chemistry
  • B.A. Degree in Chemistry
    A Bachelor of Arts degree program is available for students who want greater flexibility in the selection of courses in other fields of science in addition to basic training in chemistry. The B.A. program is designed particularly for students planning to enter the professional health fields, to teach in secondary schools, or to work in such varied areas as technical service, patent law, or ecology.

Double Major in Chemistry
You can earn a B.A. in Chemistry in addition to a degree in your home department by fulfilling the departmental (but not college) requirements for a B.A.

Dual Degree - STEM+World Language
This dual degree in language and STEM capitalizes on this natural combination. Graduates will work in international settings, with international companies or in medicine - fields where language skills are an advantage to working with or caring for diverse populations. Read more.

Advanced Degrees in Chemistry
The department also offers M.S. and Ph.D. degrees.
