Programs of Study

Elmhurst College offers several majors in chemistry and biochemistry, so you can tailor your education to suit your own professional goals. Each option prepares students for a wide variety of careers and advanced study in numerous fields. Each program begins with a set of core courses, then allows students to choose among different advanced courses to address varying career goals.

Each program relies on a strong foundation of science, where students are challenged to hone their analytical and critical-thinking skills. Classes and laboratory experiences will teach students the problem-solving skills, laboratory techniques, and technical writing and presentation skills they will need for professional school, graduate study or a career.

Regardless of the major, students graduating with a degree from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Elmhurst are well positioned to enter graduate school, work in an industrial or government research laboratory, teach science at the secondary-school level, or begin further education in a health-related field such as medicine, dentistry or veterinary science.

We also offer a minor in chemistry. Chemistry majors who are interested in technical sales, marketing or management may add a minor in business administration.
