About the BS or BA in Chemistry Degree
Why Study Chemistry at Cedarville?
Cedarville offers two degrees in chemistry, both taught from a biblical worldview: a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science.
- The BA in chemistry will prepare you for careers in health professions, technical business professions, and other science-related vocations.
- The BS in chemistry will prepare you for graduate study in chemistry and for careers in industry or research. You will receive training in each of the primary areas of chemistry with the necessary support in mathematics, physics, and biology.
Whichever you choose, you will see science as a means to understand creation and its Creator and discover how you can use your chosen vocation to glorify God.Request Info Visit
