NMC Transfer Guide

To: University of Michigan - Main Campus

Program: The B.S. Chemistry Degree or B.S. Concentration in Chemistry

“Chemistry is a dynamic discipline that stretches the imagination. At the same time Chemistry remains practical and down to earth. Chemists analyze, synthesize, quantitate and design materials.” The following courses are prerequisites to two Chemistry programs offered at University of Michigan. The B.S. Concentration in Chemistry is the degree for students who desire to prepare for jobs in the chemical industry, education and related fields. The study of Chemistry develops the ability to solve problems and to think critically. The B.S. Chemistry degree involved more course work and offers a deep rigorous experience that prepares students for top graduate programs or a career in chemical industry and related fields.
