The Major Programs

Chemistry studies the composition of matter, its structure, and the means by which it is converted from one form to another.

The Program. We offer several degree programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) and the Bachelor of Science (B.S.). To meet and discuss these programs with our staff advisors, see https://chemistry.ucdavis.edu/undergraduate/academic-advising.

The B.S. in Pharmaceutical Chemistry is strongly focused on basic science while providing students with a greater understanding of the experimental and computational processes and societal issues that surround the synthesis, discovery and design of modern pharmaceuticals. Important relevant topics include potential drug targets, physical principles of drug action, drug synthesis and screening, computational drug design, drug delivery and ethical concerns. The demand for pharmaceutical chemists is high and anticipated to grow, as modern chemistry allows a wide range of choices for drug synthesis and our growing knowledge of biological processes presents challenging targets for novel therapeutics.

Career Alternatives. Graduates in Pharmaceutical Chemistry will be able to successfully pursue their career objectives in advanced education in professional and/or graduate schools and in a range of scientific careers in academia, government or industry including the pharmaceutical, medicinal and biological sciences, medicine, pharmacy, pharmacology and biotechnology.

Major Advisor. To contact a major advisor in the Department of Chemistry, see https://chemistry.ucdavis.edu/undergraduate/academic-advising.

Honors and Honors Program. The student must take courses 194HA, 194HB, and 194HC.

Graduate Study. The Department of Chemistry offers programs of study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry. Detailed information regarding graduate study may be obtained by contacting the Graduate Advisor, Department of Chemistry. See also Graduate Studies.
