Because of the diversity of interests of students in chemistry and the increasing inter-disciplinary impact of chemistry in other areas, IIT offers optional degree programs in chemistry. Each degree program maintains the five basic core areas of chemistry while at the same time providing options to prepare students to enter an operationally well-recognized career path. Students can elect the traditional Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry where they choose their own technical electives or focus on one of the following six options: Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Biological Chemistry) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Pharmaceutical Chemistry) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Polymer Chemistry) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Materials Chemistry) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Chemical Physics) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry (Chemical Education) Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with emphasis in Materials Chemistry Materials chemistry is focused on the preparation and characterization of pure chemicals or chemical systems that have some unique function. This function can be dependent on the material's optical, electronic, magnetic or catalytic properties. The materials chemistry option at IIT draws from all five of the basic areas of chemistry to lay the foundation for understanding the synthesis, structure, characterization and applications of materials. A particularly strong emphasis at IIT is programmatic access to advanced x-ray crystallographic instrumentation to study the structure of inorganic-based materials in the solid state.
