    Chemistry is present in everything we wear, the food we eat, and the things we buy. Our life is made better, in part, by the work done by chemists. Our vigorous programs will allow you to enter the industrial world and be an active participant in it. If a masters or doctoral degree in chemistry is in your future, feel confident that Ohio Dominican University can give you tools necessary to succeed in graduate school. Many students go on to professional school (e.g. physician, veterinarian, optometrist, podiatrist, etc.) Although students seeking a chemistry-centered career are advised to follow the Bachelor of Science curriculum, Ohio Dominican University also offers the Associate of Science degree in Chemistry. Three licensures in the natural sciences are available at Ohio Dominican University. These include those listed above as well as:

    • Life Science Education - Grades 7-12 
    • Integrated Science Education - Grades 7-12 

    These all include a common core of science courses and an emphasis on pedagogical techniques. The three licensures are designed so a student may move from one teaching major to another with ease. This allows the student to nuance his/her program as maturity within the field develops.
