If you’re naturally curious about the world around you, maybe Chemistry is the major for you. You’ll study why things are the way they are, what they’re made of, and why they react the way they do.
And there’s a reason chemistry is sometimes called “the central science”—it is an incredibly versatile field. That’s why Penn State Behrend’s B.S. in Chemistry gives you options for your future career path. You can choose from four options to tailor your B.S. in Chemistry: General Chemistry, Biochemistry, Business, or Education.
