Undergraduate Study in Chemistry and Biochemistry at SDSU

Degree Programs

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at San Diego State University is proud to have offered the Bachelor of Science degree, accredited by the American Chemical Society (ACS), to our most qualified undergraduates continuously since 1949. This rigorous program is held to the highest standards by the ACS to ensure its depth, breadth, and currency. The Bachelor of Arts degree is also available, as well as more specialized degrees emphasizing Biochemistry or Chemical Physics.

Information on all undergraduate degree programs is available in the Chemistry section of the General Catalog.
