Because of the diversity of interests of students in chemistry and the increasing interdisciplinary impact of chemistry in other areas, Illinois Tech offers optional degree programs in chemistry. Each degree program maintains the five basic core areas of chemistry while at the same time providing options to prepare students to enter an operationally well-recognized career path.
Students can elect to pursue a co-terminal degree providing an opportunity for students to gain greater knowledge in specialized areas while completing a smaller number of credit hours with better scheduling flexibility than completion of the two degrees separately. Co-terminal degrees offered in chemistry include:
- Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Master of Science in Biology for the Health Professions
- Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Master of Science in Chemistry
