Undergraduate Chemistry Majors

Students can choose our standard chemistry program, which is comparable to that offered in any major university, or our biochemistry track, which is ACS-Approved Chemistry Program designed to give more flexibility to students wanting to pursue courses with biological focus. Certification of the degree by the American Chemical Society is available.  We encourage students in either major track to include independent study with one of our internationally-recognized faculty as a component of the undergraduate experience. Undergraduate Research will frequently result in journal publications and/or presentations at scientific meetings.

The primary goal of UFTeach is to increase the quantity and quality of

 secondary mathematics and science teachers. This mission will be accomplished through new partnerships between the University of Florida’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Education and several Florida school districts. UFTeach will use imaginative recruiting strategies to bring UF’s best and brightest into teaching.
