About the Chemistry Program

Chemistry is the study of matter, the material of the universe and its changes. A knowledge of chemical principles provides the groundwork for the intellectual consideration of the effect of chemistry on society.  Western’s chemistry department offers degree programs that are designed to prepare students for:

(1) professional programs including medical school and pharmacy programs

(2) careers as laboratory or forensic chemists

(3) graduate study in pure or applied chemistry

Combining a chemistry major with an appropriate minor prepares students for careers in fields such as biochemistry, oceanography, toxicology and in environmental and atmospheric science. You may choose from one of five degree tracks listed above to obtain an education focused on chemistry. Please click on the links above to see more detail about the individual track requirements.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
