Required for B.A. in Chemistry:

  • CHM 111-112, 201-202, 212, 301-302, 311, 320, 403, 411
  • MTH 120, 221 (It is strongly suggested that chemistry majors begin with Mathematics 120 as freshmen.)
  • PHY 105-106

Required for B.S. in Chemistry:

CHM 111-112, 201-202, 212, 301-302, 311, 320, 403, 411, 480
MTH 120, 221
(It is strongly suggested that chemistry majors begin with Mathematics 120 as freshmen.)
PHY 105-106

Required for B.A. in Biochemistry:

  • Requirements are identical to those for B.A. in Chemistry, with the substitution of CHM 412 for CHM 320.

Required for B.S. in Biochemistry:

Requirements are identical to those for B.S. in Chemistry, with the substitution of CHM 412 for CHM 320.

The Department suggests that all majors have at least 400 hours of lecture and 500 hours of laboratory work, CSC 152, a second computer-based course, and/or a reading knowledge of a foreign language. Advanced work in chemistry and research experience are recommended. This additional work may qualify a major for accreditation by the American Chemical Society. The Chemistry Program is accredited by the American Chemical Society.

Required for a Minor in Chemistry

  • CHM 111-112
  • CHM 201-202
  • Two of CHM, CHM 301, CHM 302, CHM 311, CHM 320

A chemistry concentration in environmental science is available. See the Concentration section of Geology, Environmental Science, and Physics programs for more information.
