Choose From Three Degrees

Thomas More College offers a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Science and an Associate of Arts degree in Chemistry. You decide which degree is right for you depending on where you’re headed. We recommend a second major or an Associate degree in biology, business administration, computer information systems, criminal justice, economics, mathematics or physics to broaden your opportunities in business, industry, government and education. If you’re preparing for medical, dental or veterinary school, our major program in Chemistry is easily adapted to meet their requirements. In fact, a Bachelor of Science degree in another discipline accompanied by an Associate degree (minor) in Chemistry has been a successful strategy for acceptance into medical schools and other health-related fields.
