American Chemical Society Accredited
Both of our bachelor’s degrees are accredited by The American Chemical Society – the world’s largest scientific society. ACS accreditation means that you’re getting a world-class chemistry education from exceptionally skilled leaders in the field. It assures you that SFA’s chemistry programs meet the demanding standards of ACS, putting you in favorable standing when it’s time to apply for professional chemist jobs or graduate school.
American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Accredited
The bachelor’s degree in biochemistry is accredited by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, one of only seven Texas programs with the distinction. Accreditation by this international nonprofit scientific and educational organization assures you that the training you’ll receive from our faculty is of the highest quality.
The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers two bachelor’s degrees — a Bachelor's in chemistry and a Bachelor's in biochemistry.
Note that students majoring in biochemistry, chemistry interdisciplinary studies or the chemistry secondary education concentration will require additional courses beyond their degree requirements to become ACS certified.
The Bachelor of Science in biochemistry is also accredited by the ASBMB, ensuring that the program aligns with the concepts and skills needed in biochemistry careers.
