As an undergraduate chemistry or biochemistry major at Ohio State, students will be taught by internationally recognized faculty and trained in world-class research labs. Along the way, students will receive a first class education, be exposed to cutting edge science and develop valuable critical thinking skills. For many students, this exposure to research opportunities will culminate in an undergraduate research thesis. When students graduate from Ohio State with a degree in chemistry or biochemistry, they will be positioned to pursue a variety of career paths. Our graduates may choose to seek job opportunities immediately upon graduation, enter a graduate program where students can pursue a Master's or PhD in their discipline or related areas, or seek a professional degree in a field such as medicine, pharmacy, engineering, business, or law.
Undergraduate students can pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) or Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry, through a well-defined series of prerequisite and core courses. Student of any major can add a minor in either discipline.
