New Chemistry BA Program Available at UMD

A Chemistry Bachelor of Arts (CHEM-BA) program will be offered at UMD starting in Fall of 2023. 

The CHEM-BA program complements the traditional Bachelor of Science programs (CHEM-BS and BCHM-BS) by providing a broader, less technically-focused undergraduate degree in the chemical sciences. It is designed for students who seek a strong base of scientific knowledge but who would also like to broaden their skills through coursework in other subjects. This new degree option is particularly suitable for students who intend to (1) double major, minor, or earn certificates in fields such as business, public policy, public health, environmental studies, data science, information studies, or journalism; (2) earn K-12 teaching certification; or (3) pursue advanced degrees in the health professions, business, or law.
