Bachelor of Science Medicinal Chemistry Option

A B.S. degree in chemistry with a concentration in medicinal chemistry requires course work in both chemistry and biology. The required 38 credit hours of chemistry include: CHEM 1180, 1184, 1190, 1194, 2250, 2260, 2274, 2400, 2404, 2500, 3350, 3354, 3710, 4650, 4654, one additional lecture from CHEM 3210, 4230, 4240, 4660 and one additional lab from CHEM 3424, 4664, or 4950. The required nine credit hours of biology course work are BIOL 1450 and 2140. Four additional credit hours must come from CHEM 3120, 3360 (3364), 3414, 3424, 3514, 4230, 4240, 4400 (4404), 4500, 4660 (4664), 4670, 4810, 4930, 4950, 4960 or BIOL 3020, 3240, 3830, 4130, 4140, 4450, 4640, 4720 (4730), 4850, 4960. Required cognates are Calculus (MATH 1950, 1960); and a year sequence of general physics with laboratories. Graduates meeting ACS requirements will be certified.

These courses can also be applied to pre-professional curricula. For example, with care to the selection of electives and sequencing of requirements, pre-pharmacy students who stay at UNO can complete a B.S. in chemistry with a concentration in medicinal chemistry in four years.
