The B.S. program in medicinal-pharmaceutical chemistry is designed to serve students who desire a more focused preparation in the analysis and synthesis of compounds of pharmacological significance. The program will also serve as a solid foundational curriculum for further studies in medicine, pharmacy or forensic chemistry.
A mark of distinction and rigor is that each student is required to conduct research, which normally includes a ten-week summer period following their junior year and culminates with the submission of a research thesis and the presentation of a seminar.
