College of Science
Chemistry at Purdue University has a ratio of 1 faculty member for every 8 undergraduates, which allows students to enjoy a great deal of individualized attention. It also offers opportunities for mentoring programs and cutting-edge undergraduate research in a wide range of fields from drug discovery to climate change. Chemistry majors can pursue one of two degrees: B.S. in chemistry, accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS); or the more flexible B.S. with chemistry as a field of study, which allows for specializations in ACS-accredited biochemistry or chemistry education.
There is also the opportunity to complete in five years a dual degree with chemical engineering or material science engineering, after acceptance into the College of Engineering.
