Trinity offers four degree programs in chemistry and biochemistry. Our core curriculum consists of one semester of introductory, one year of organic chemistry, one semester each of biochemistry, physical, and analytical chemistry, one year of physics, and two semesters of calculus. Each degree requires additional advanced credit hours.
The B.S. is a rigorous four-year degree for students who plan to be professional chemists. The program meets the standards set by the American Chemical Society in training chemists for the profession and for graduate programs.
The B.A. is a slightly less-intensive degree designed for students interested in secondary teaching, premedical training, or interdisciplinary studies.
The B.S. in biochemistry prepares students for graduate study and research in the growing field of biotechnology and chemistry of life processes.
A more interdisciplinary degree than the B.S. in biochemistry, this degree prepares students for graduate study or medical school.
The B.S. in neuroscience is a multi-disciplinary program designed to provide an understanding of the nature and functioning of the nervous system from the molecular to the behavioral level. Courses, taught by faculty from the biology, psychology, and chemistry departments, offer a broad spectrum of topics and approaches to the study of neural systems' structure and function.
A minor in chemistry may be obtained by successful completion of a minimum of 20 hours in chemistry and at least 6 additional hours in upper division courses.
