Overview

In selecting advanced courses, students may tailor their programs to fit specific career objectives, such as industrial chemistry, biochemistry, graduate study, research, medicine or dentistry. Students should plan their programs in consultation with a faculty adviser. Advanced course programs must be approved as part of the application for major standing.

To earn a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in chemistry, a student must be approved for major standing and must complete the core curriculum, which requires a minimum of 44 credits in chemistry and 18 credits of corequisite courses, plus eight elective credits in chemistry at the 400 level of which at least two credits must be laboratories. The specific selection of the eight elective credits in chemistry at the 400 level must be approved in writing by the chemistry department’s chief adviser. CHM 491 (3 credits) may be included as part of these elective credits, as this course satisfies the university general education capstone requirement. Another option for the general education capstone requirement is BCM 457/CHM 457 - Biochemistry Laboratory (3 credits).
