The Chemistry degree program at California State University East Bay provides students with advanced training in chemistry and the analytical skills needed to process and critique complex chemical information.


The Chemistry program at California State University East Bay requires a set of core courses encompassing the different disciplines of chemistry. Students may complete the remaining unit requirements with coursework in chemistry or may choose a biochemistry concentration, with the additional coursework in that area.
