Bachelor of Science with a major in Chemistry and a concentration in Medicinal Chemistry

Program Overview

The AU chemistry program is nationally accredited with students having the option of obtaining an American Chemical Society (ACS) certified degree. The medicinal chemistry concentration focuses the curriculum on organic and analytical areas to complement the medicinal chemistry courses.  Students will learn about drug design, mechanism of action of drugs, classes of drugs, and modern methods of synthesis.  Major elective hours allow customization of the degree and facilitate the ability to satisfy prerequisite courses for pre-medical, pre-dental, or pre-pharmacy preparation.  Participation in undergraduate research may be completed for credit towards major electives and is highly recommended.
