    Welcome to the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry!

    What Does a Chemist Do? You are interested in chemistry – but what can you do with a degree in this field? As the central science, chemistry is a rewarding, albeit challenging, field of study. It is learning about the composition, properties and reactions possible with a diversity of substances, many of which are involved in different aspects of everyday life. A Bachelor of Science Degree in chemistry can open doors to further study at graduate schools or professional schools (e.g., medical, dental or pharmacy school). A chemistry degree can also qualify one to work in industry, analytical and forensic laboratories, conduct research, or teach at the high school level. Boise State University also offers a Master of Science degree in Chemistry; see your advisor for more details.

    Advising Matters! The department strongly recommends meeting with an advisor each semester. Advising provides an opportunity:

    • to discuss your career goals and plans. • to review classes, prerequisites and schedules, keeping in mind possible curriculum changes that may

    not be listed in the catalog. Advisors can often provide helpful strategies for getting into closed classes, and can also act as your advocate.

    • to help ensure that required classes are completed in a timely manner, and that you are on schedule for graduation.

    • for your advisor to get to know you, so they can provide a reference if needed later for applications for employment or graduate and professional schools.

    If you have not yet been assigned an advisor or have other advising questions, please contact Karen Hammond, Manager, Student Support (and department Advising Coordinator) at khammond@boisestate.edu or in SCNC 154E, phone 208/426-1386. Many students new to Boise State are also assigned to an advisor from COAS or CASS (Center for Advising and Student Success). Please take advantage of having two advisors during your first year, and do not hesitate to ask questions!

    This Advising and Research Packet is not designed to replace in-person advising, but rather to help you as you plan your schedule of required classes and other necessary credits. Included in this packet are:

    • A list of emphasis choices within the chemistry degree. • A suggested schedule of courses to help you stay on track*. • Items of information about research within the department.

    *Every effort has been made to ensure that this document is current and error free. However, the requirements on record in the BSU Catalog and in the registrar’s office are the official arbiter of graduation requirements.

    Emphasis choices within the Chemistry, Bachelor of Science Degree • The Professional Emphasis is certified by the American Chemical Society and offers a

    comprehensive preparation in all sub-disciplines of chemistry. • The Biochemistry Emphasis options prepare students for careers and further study at the interface of

    chemistry and biology. One of the biochemistry emphases is certified by the American Chemical Society. The biochemistry emphases include the standard courses required for application to professional schools such as medical, dental and pharmacy schools.

    • The Forensics Emphasis combines a set of foundational chemistry classes with courses in other areas to prepare students for work in the specialized field of forensics.

    • The Secondary Education Emphasis prepares and certifies students to teach the next generation of scientists at the high school level.

    All of the chemistry degree emphases above require one year of faculty-directed research. Please see page 14 of this packet for more information about research. Boise State University also offers a Master of Science in Chemistry; see the Graduate Catalog at https://d25vtythmttl3o.cloudfront.net/uploads/sites/285/files/2018/10/2018-2019-Boise-State-University- Graduate-Catalog-1.pdf for more information.
