Chemistry M m

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

Would you like to develop a life-saving drug, design a space capsule, or analyze moon rock? What about studying DNA molecules or creating a new antibiotic?

At Spring Hill College, you’ll explore the role of chemistry in everyday life, and apply your knowledge to understand and provide possible solutions to current day concerns like acid rain, global warming, and water quality.
