The B.S. in Chemistry program includes most of the courses recommended by the American Chemical Society (ACS) and provides a rigorous background well-suited to those students who will pursue graduate studies in chemistry. The program is also highly recommended for premedical students. The program contains six technical electives. By careful selection of courses, these electives allow the student to develop a cluster in a related field such as biotechnology, biochemistry, computer science, environmental studies, or an engineering field.
The minor in chemistry provides a useful background for students majoring in other areas. Majors in biology, forensic science, engineering or other areas may organize their degree path to complete a minimum of 15 credits in the following courses: Organic Chemistry II, Quantitative Analysis, Instrumental Methods of Analysis, Synthetic Methods, Advanced Organic or Inorganic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, and Physical Chemistry I and II. For specific information concerning a minor in chemistry, please consult with the program coordinator.
