The Department of Chemistry at The Catholic University of America offers several programs that lead to the B.A. or B.S. degree. The curricula are designed to prepare the student for a career in industry or secondary education, for admission to a graduate program in chemistry or biochemistry, or for admission to medical school.

Students can expect small class sizes, and a hands-on approach from professors that larger universities cannot offer.
