BS in chemistry is a four year bachelor level programme. The programme is designed according to the national and international standard. Graduates of this programme have gone to various countries, industries, and organizations for job and higher studies.

The BS Chemistry programme is offered with the following FIVE specializations: 

  1. Inorganic Chemistry
  2. Organic Chemistry
  3. Physical Chemistry
  4. Biochemistry
  5. Analytical Chemistry

In the last two semesters, students are given choices to choose major of their own interest. Students will be required to complete eight (08) courses from major they have chosen. In addition to these courses students will do their Senior Design Project in the same specialty.

The curriculum of BS Chemistry is divided into various categories as shown in the below table:
