Why Study Chemistry at IU Southeast?

Smaller IU Southeast chemistry class sizes make it possible for students to interact freely with professors. The curriculum emphasizes hands-on use of state-of-the-art laboratory instruments for especially strong career preparation. Undergraduate research is emphasized in an atmosphere of intellectual independence and creative thinking with the direct stimulus of a professor - an opportunity that cannot be matched by the lecture environment alone.

Why Study Image

What is Chemistry?

Nutrition, medicine, energy sources and alternatives, rocket fuels, biological research - these are just a few of the endless areas touched by the discipline we call chemistry. Chemistry is defined as "the study of matter", and that makes the importance, relevance and scope of the subject as far-reaching as matter itself. Chemistry is not only concerned with the basic structures and properties of material substances, but also with the changes that occur as matter is transformed from one state to another and as one substance is changed into a variety of new and different substances.

The Major

Chemistry majors are as varied as the many areas the subject encompasses, and yet they have many of the same characteristics. By its very nature, chemistry attracts curious and imaginative individuals who are interested in learning more about the world around them and in solving problems by rational thinking.

The IU Southeast Program

The chemistry program at IU Southeast is approved by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and offers a variety of bachelor degrees in chemistry as well as to serve and support other disciplines and schools of the university. Chemistry majors can, by consultation with faculty advisors, tailor their studies to accommodate their particular career plans.

Students desiring a knowledge of chemistry as a basis for work in other fields (such as medicine, dentistry, business or law), may limit themselves to some specific courses. Most students, however, choose to strengthen their degrees by increasing the number of hours of chemistry and mathematics courses taken. Those students planning to become professional chemists should take another 10-20 hours of chemistry and several additional mathematics courses. Students who complete the requirements for a professional degree receive a certificate from the ACS. This is a recognized accomplishment when entering graduate school or beginning work in the chemical industry. Along with these courses, chemistry majors must also fulfill the general requirements of the bachelor degree by completing courses in language, humanities, and the social and biological sciences. Upon graduation, students will have accumulated about 120 credit hours.

Special Features

Smaller IU Southeast chemistry class sizes make it possible for students to interact freely with professors. The curriculum emphasizes hands-on use of state-of-the-art laboratory instruments for especially strong career preparation. Undergraduate research is emphasized in an atmosphere of intellectual independence and creative thinking with the direct stimulus of a professor - an opportunity that cannot be matched by the lecture environment alone. IU Southeast chemistry students regularly.

Relatively small class sizes and liberal faculty office hours offer IU Southeast chemistry students the opportunity for close faculty - student interactions and discussions, which can be very helpful in developing scientific and personal maturity. The appropriate use of audio-visual aids, computer assisted instruction, and other modern teaching-learning techniques are employed by the faculty. There is also easy access to the extensive library facilities of the Indiana University system, and those of the Metroversity institutions. An active undergraduate research program exists in which junior and senior students with strong backgrounds are encouraged to participate. Research is currently being conducted in the following areas: a) Synthesis of organic compounds with potential biological importance such as fertility regulating agents and substances for treatment of drug abuse victims. b) The application of computers to lab data acquisition and control situations. c) The synthesis of and electrical/spectral properties of inorganic complexes. d) The synthesis and reactivity studies of metal chalogenide complexes. e) Designing of new analytical chemistry schemes, application of analytical chemistry in the hydrometallurgical processing of ores for metal recovery and designing environmentally benign process methodologies for the recovery of metals and wastewater and effluent treatment.

An active chemistry club, which is affiliated with ACS, allows the students to interact on a social and professional basis. The Chemistry Club sponsors guest speakers and trips to local chemical industries and graduate schools, thus providing important exposure to professional chemists and to opportunities for careers in chemistry. The Chemistry Club also sponsors social events which build a sense of camaraderie among its members.

Chemistry majors will have the opportunity to gain experience in the techniques of atomic absorption, infrared, ultraviolet, and visible spectrophotometries, as well as polarography, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry, differential scanning calorimetry, magnetic susceptibility, and various types of chromatography including gas, high-pressure liquid, column, and thin layer. Graduates with extensive training in chemistry can qualify for a number of academic, industrial or governmental positions which involve teaching, basic research, or administrative duties. Many industrial jobs for chemists involve developing new and more useful products and analyzing materials for quality control, environmental and consumer protection, and medical diagnosis.

A sound undergraduate chemistry background qualifies students for advanced work in graduate or professional schools. Aside from graduate studies in various fields of chemistry, other possibilities include specialization in medicine or related professions, food technology, agriculture, earth and environmental sciences, business and law. Also, students with training in chemistry can become certified to teach chemistry in high schools and junior college.

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry – American Chemical Society Certified

The Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry are approved by the American Chemical Society.  These degrees are especially recommended for students who plan to pursue graduate studies in chemical sciences, including analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical, polymer, and physical chemistry, as well as those who are interested in pursuing advanced degrees in medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry.  Students completing this program will receive a certificate from the American Chemistry Society.

Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry

This program is designed for students who need more flexibility or those who desire to complete a Chemistry degree with the minimum chemistry requirements but rich in other courses of interest.  This program is recommended for students who plan to begin a career in a chemical laboratory immediately after graduation, as well as those who are considering a profession in such areas as politics or chemistry-related law and plan to attend a law school.

Minors in Chemistry

Minors in Chemistry & Environmental Chemistry are offered through the Chemistry Departments at IU Southeast.  Non-Chemistry Majors complete 20-21 credit hours to complete the Chemistry Minor.  The Environmental Chemistry Minor is offered to majors and non-majors and requires 26-27 credit hours to complete.

General Background About Chemical Careers

Chemistry is a basic science which applies an understanding of molecular structure and reactivity to the study of substances, whether they are biological, geological, cosmic, or synthetic in origin. Chemists are thus concerned with fundamental causes of transformation in matter and with synthesis and characterization of new substances.

Persons with a knowledge of chemistry have careers in a great variety of industries, research laboratories, and state agencies. A chemistry major with a Bachelor of Science degree may find employment doing routine laboratory work, assisting on a research team, working in product development, or she/he may work in the business-related areas of plant management, marketing or sales.

Typical jobs include:

  • Pharmaceutical chemist
  • Industry, academic, or government chemist
  • Environmental chemist
  • Chemist in food, textile, petroleum, or pesticide product and process development
  • Production chemist
  • Pulp and paper chemist
  • Paint formulation chemist
  • Technical/industrial sales representative

Chemistry Career Fields

There are hundreds of different options for a chemistry graduate. Below are just a small sampling of what is possible with a degree in chemistry. (Information was collected from the American Chemical Society's "Chemical Careers in Brief" brochures.)

  • Agricultural Chemistry
    Agricultural chemistry focuses on chemical compositions and changes involved in the production, protection, and use of crops and livestock. Agricultural chemists perform research projects that cover many fields, including the development of molecules that control weeds or other pests, modifications to molecules so that it works for longer periods of time or at lower dosages, and testing the impact certain chemicals that are used to protect foods have on humans.
  • Analytical Chemistry
    Analytical chemistry is the science of obtaining, processing, and communicating information about the composition and structure of matter. Analytical chemists are generally involved with making measurements using sophisticated state of the art computer controlled instrumentation in many different laboratory settings. Analytical chemists also can play in integral role in quality control.
  • Biochemistry
    Biochemistry is the study of the structure, composition, and chemical reactions of substances in living systems. Biochemists study the chemical components and processes of living systems (plants, insects, viruses, etc.) to explain how and why chemical reactions occur.
  • Biotechnology
    Biotechnology is the application of biological organisms, systems, or processes by various industries to learning about the science of life, and the improvement of the value of organisms and materials such as pharmaceuticals, crops, and livestock. Biotechnologists can work on such projects as cloning, selective breeding techniques, and other specialties.
  • Chemical Information
    Chemical information specialists manage technical information as an occupation. Careers in chemical information can include being a scientific librarian, a technical information specialist, a market researcher, technical publisher, software developer, and more.
  • Chemical Sales and Marketing
    Sales and marketing managers meet with customers and suppliers and work with the scientists in their own firms. They often link the technical staff with its markets.
  • Environmental Chemistry
    Environmental chemists' duties are very diverse. They can work on such projects as colleting and analyzing samples, developing remediation programs, changing production processes to ones that yield a more environmentally friendly product, advising on safety and emergency response, or dealing with government regulation and compliance.
  • Food & Flavor Chemistry
    Food chemistry is the study of the chemistry of foods, their deterioration, and the principles underlying the improvement of foods for the consuming public. Chemists in these fields often look at the properties of proteins, starches, fat, and carbohydrates. Flavor chemists develop flavors which contribute to the overall food system.
  • Forensic Chemistry
    Forensic chemists apply knowledge from diverse disciplines such as chemistry, biology, materials science, and genetics to the analysis of evidence found at crime scenes or on/in the body of a crime suspect. They use a wide range of techniques and instruments such as UV, infrared, x-ray, gas chromatography, HPLC, and thin layer chromatography. The results of their work are often used in police investigations and court trials.
  • Inorganic Chemistry
    Inorganic chemistry is the study of the synthesis and behavior of inorganic (metals, minerals, superconductors, ceramics, and other composites) and organometallic compounds. Their work includes basic research but is more often oriented toward production applications.
  • Medicinal Chemistry
    Medicinal chemistry is the application of chemical research techniques to the synthesis of pharmaceuticals. Medicinal chemists often synthesize new drugs, try to improve the drug making processes, and make drugs safer and more effective.
  • Organic Chemistry
    Organic chemistry is the branch of chemistry that deals with the structure, properties, and reactions of compounds that contain carbon. Organic chemists may design, synthesize, characterize, and develop applications for molecules that contain carbon. Organic chemists often use sophisticated computer-controlled equipment to perform synthesis and characterization, making computer literacy a must!

Academic Advising

All students who have been admitted to IU Southeast and declare their major in Chemistry will be advised through the School of Natural Sciences. First year students are required to meet with a Professional Advisor once during their first academic year. 

Students are strongly encouraged to consult with an advisor to review academic requirements, discuss prospective courses, and consider how those courses fit into the overall academic and career plan.

To schedule an appointment with one of the Chemistry Professional Advisors, please call the Natural Science Advising Office at (812) 941-2184.

Faculty Advising

In addition to meeting regularly with a Professional Academic Advisor, it is recommended that students meet with a Faculty Advisor during the Junior and Senior years. 

Dr. Jan Fleischer (Chemistry Coordinator & Chemistry Advisor)

Recommended Preparation

Ideally, a career in chemistry should begin with a college preparatory high school education. Mathematics preparation is very important. High school students should take all the available college preparatory elective courses in mathematics and the sciences.

High school graduates should have completed one year each of chemistry and physics, a minimum of two years of algebra, geometry, one semester of trigonometry, and at least two years of a modern foreign language and English in order to enter directly into the chemistry major curriculum. Although deficiencies can be made up by taking extra courses or by independent study, students entering the chemistry program with only minimal preparation in any of the above areas may run the risk of having their academic progress delayed.
