Bachelor of Science Chemistry Option

A B.S. degree in chemistry requires a minimum of 42 credit hours of approved chemistry courses.

The required 33 credit hours of chemistry include: CHEM 1180, CHEM 1184, CHEM 1190, CHEM 1194, CHEM 2250, CHEM 2260, CHEM 2274, CHEM 2400, CHEM 2404, CHEM 2500, CHEM 3350, CHEM 3354, CHEM 3360, CHEM 3364, CHEM 3414, and CHEM 3514.

In addition, 9 credit hours must come from the following advanced courses: analytical (CHEM 3424, CHEM 4400, CHEM 4404); biochemistry (CHEM 4610, CHEM 4650, CHEM 4654, CHEM 4660, CHEM 4664, CHEM 4670); inorganic (CHEM 4500, CHEM 4510, CHEM 4540); organic (CHEM 3210, CHEM 4230, CHEM 4240); polymer (CHEM 4310);research (CHEM 4950, CHEM 4960); internship (CHEM 4810) and special topics (CHEM 4930).

Required cognate courses are Calculus (MATH 1950, MATH 1960) and a year sequence of general physics (PHYS 2110 and PHYS 2120) and laboratories (PHYS 1154 and PHYS 1164). Calculus III (MATH 1970) is recommended.

To graduate with an ACS certified degree, the student’s program of study must also include biochemistry (CHEM 4650 or CHEM 4610), two additional upper-level lectures, and one additional credit hour of upper-level lab.
