Chemistry and Physical Sciences Degree

Academic Program

It's all chemistry!  Everything in the physical world around us has a chemistry component.  Chemistry offers another level of understanding to students of biological, physical, environmental and other sciences.  Resolution of critical issues facing societies today requires individuals who understand and can communicate applicable chemical principles.  These critical issues include alternate energy sources, environment protection, food production and quality, and health care.  The best solutions include both an understanding of chemistry and of Biblical principles of stewardship.  At NGU, we equip students with a good grounding in chemistry and God's Word to prepare them to pursue careers in chemistry or any field that will relate to these needs.  Most importantly, courses at NGU fully integrated the very real revelation of God in the physical creation (Romans 1:20).

The College of Science and Math offers a chemistry minor that requires completion of the courses shown below.
