Areas of Study


Our program is distinguished by rigorous academics combined with extensive opportunities for research. As a student in the Donald J. Bettinger Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, you will receive a solid foundation in math and the physical sciences, and you will build life skills in leadership, teamwork, problem-solving and critical thinking.

With any of these degrees, you’ll be ready to work in an industry or government lab or pursue an advanced degree such as a Ph.D., MD, or PharmD.

Specific courses offer by the department are described in the ONU Handbook.

We have a specific program for teacher licensure for students seeking to teach High School Chemistry Courses (Adolescent Young Adult (7-12) Physical Sciences: Chemistry; Physical Sciences: Chemistry and Physics; or Integrated Science).

Students can also minor in the department with the following concentrations:
