The American Chemical Society (ACS) has developed national guidelines for Bachelors programs in chemistry and approved chemistry programs that meet these standards by offering “a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that gives students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals.”
