Montana Tech Department of Chemistry and Geochemistry
The Department of Chemistry and Geochemistry offers a B.S. degree in Chemistry and a M.S. degree in Geochemistry. The chemistry department offers 3 undergraduate degree options; all three of the degree options are certified by the American Chemical Society (ACS). The undergraduate curriculum allows sufficient electives for students to tailor their program to match career objectives.
Biochemistry Option - This option is for students interested in pursuing careers in research and/or professional practice in biomedicine and health care, including careers in biotechnology, medicine, medical technology, pharmacy, dentistry, etc. Several transfer articulations have been developed for this option.
Professional Option - The professional option has curriculum designed for students interested in a career in chemistry. This option will give students a complete background in chemistry while allowing students to take advanced courses in overlapping areas of interest such as Materials Science Engineering.
Environmental Chemistry Option - This option is for students who also desire a strong background in the environmental sciences. Students Students in this curriculum will also take focused coursework in geology and environmental engineering.
Specialize in Biochemistry, Professional or Environmental chemistry. Each area is designed to enhance knowledge in the special area while maintaining a strong chemical orientation.
Geochemistry is an interdisciplinary field of study in which the science of chemistry is used to solve earth science problems. Master your field.
This minor requires that the student complete 19 to 22 credits of chemistry courses that span the major inorganic, organic, analytical, and physical sub-disciplines of chemistry. For many Montana Tech students completing the Chemistry Minor only requires taking one or two extra courses.
Learn about the more than 100 careers you can go into with a background in Chemistry. Have you ever heard of a ceramicist? Do you want to work in epi-genomics or forensic anthropology? The opportunities are endless.
