Major & Minor

Requirements

Students may earn a Bachelor of Arts in chemistry by completing the following requirements in the Chemistry Department

*Chemistry 107 - Chemical Structure & Bonding
*Chemistry 108 - Chemical Reactivity
Chemistry 203 - Organic Chemistry 1: Structure and Mechanism
Chemistry 204 - Organic Chemistry 2:  Reactivity and Chemical Synthesis
Chemistry 222 - Chemistry: Contemporary Issues & Practices
Chemistry 305 - Physical Chemistry 1: Chemical Thermodynamics & Kinetics
Two additional 200- or 300-level Chemistry courses, at least one of which must have a lab or be a lab-only course.

In addition, students must complete the following courses from other departments

Physics 109 - Introductory Physics I
Physics 110 - Introductory Physics II
Math 111 - Calculus I
Math 112 - Calculus II

Chemistry 306-Physical Chemistry 2: Quantum Chemistry and Spectroscopy, can be taken in place of Chemistry 305, but Math 211 is a pre-requisite.

Those students who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Science in chemistry are required to complete the following requirements in the Chemistry Department:

*Chemistry 107 - Chemical Structure & Bonding
*Chemistry 108 - Chemical Reactivity
Chemistry 203 - Organic Chemistry 1: Structure and Mechanism
Chemistry 204 - Organic Chemistry 2:  Reactivity and Chemical Synthesis
Chemistry 222 - Chemistry: Contemporary Issues & Practices
Chemistry 305 - Physical Chemistry 1: Chemical Thermodynamics & Kinetics
Chemistry 306-Physical Chemistry 2: Quantum Chemistry and Spectroscopy
Two sections of of 300-level advanced laboratories – choose from the I-Labs (354-357) and the X-Labs (358 and 359)
Chemistry 375 - Advanced Inorganic Chemistry
Chemistry 410 - Senior Research Seminar
One additional 200- or 300-level Chemistry course

In addition, students must complete the following courses from other departments

Physics 109 - Introductory Physics I
Physics 110 - Introductory Physics II
Math 111 - Calculus I
Math 112 - Calculus II
Math 211 - Multivariable Calculus

Students who wish to pursue an American Chemical Society accredited degree must complete the Bachelor of Science degree plus one of the following courses.

Chemistry 333 - Biochemistry 1
Chemistry/Biology 334 - Biochemistry 2

Students who wish to pursue a minor in chemistry must complete the following courses

*Chemistry 107 - Chemical Structure & Bonding
*Chemistry 108 - Chemical Reactivity
Three courses at or above the 200-level
One course at or above the 300-level.

Note: If Chemistry/Biology 334 is used to meet the requirements of a major in Biology, it may not also be used to satisfy course requirements for a Chemistry minor.

* Students intending to take Chemistry 107/108 must take a placement test prior to enrolling in Chemistry 107. Chemistry 107-I and Chemistry 108-I, which provide students with extra support through weekly recitation sections, count as the equivalent to Chemistry 107 and Chemistry 108.
