Five students performing an experiment in a chemistry lab class

You’re already a chemist, using your knowledge of the substances around you to navigate the day. Dig deeper into these building blocks of matter by building your knowledge of chemistry.

At LaGrange, a hands-on chemistry education can propel you toward a range of professions.

Which field of study is right for you?

If you’d like a broad natural science background that will prepare you for a career in medicine, law or related fields, choose a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Chemistry. It's a major whose requirements are not so demanding that you can’t find time for nonchemistry electives. 

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) program in Chemistry is designed for students who intend to pursue graduate school in chemistry or related fields such as chemical physics and environmental chemistry, or work in research or industry. 

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Biochemistry will prepare you for professional school or further study in disciplines that bridge chemistry and biology. The requirements of this major are few enough to leave significant time for nonchemistry electives.
