About our Chemistry Degree Program

Chemistry focuses on matter -- both in the form of energy and in the form of mass. It also examines how matter converts from one form to another as the basis for changing substances. In your studies, you will conduct experiments as you learn about chemical theory, analysis, compounds and much more.

As a CMU Chemistry major, you will have opportunities to:

  • participate in classes that provide hands-on experience in conducting research, collecting data, developing theories, and performing experiments
  • grow as a leader by socially interacting with other chemistry students as part of Gamma Sigma Epsilon – a national chemistry honor society, Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society – a national professional organization in chemistry, and/or Alpha Epsilon Delta – a national pre-health professions fraternity
  • strengthen your understanding of chemistry so you are prepared for a variety of professional positions in science-related fields
