Students must complete all of the following requirements to graduate with a bachelor of arts in this program. Some courses may apply toward multiple requirements.

College Requirements:

  

Students are required to complete all standard college requirements.

Major Requirements:


Total major units: 14.5

Recommended, but Not Required:


  • If a student wishes to obtain certification of their program by the American Chemical Society, two units of calculus (MATH 111  and MATH 112 , or a second calculus course covering techniques of integration, sequences, and series) and one unit of biochemistry must be included. ACS certification is not required for graduation, but may prove useful for students seeking employment as chemists following graduation.
  • Students contemplating graduate work in chemistry are encouraged to take CHEM 315  and CHEM 316 .
  • Students with special interests in physical and/or theoretical chemistry should take MATH 112 , MATH 201 , and MATH 202 ; PHYS 211 PHYS 231 , and PHYS 202 ; and CHEM 315 , CHEM 316 , and CHEM 403 , and/or CHEM 324  (or independent study in theoretical/computational chemistry), and should consult with an adviser concerning more advanced courses in mathematics and physics.
  • Students contemplating graduate work in biochemistry or related fields should take CHEM 391 , CHEM 392 , and CHEM 394 , and should consult with an adviser concerning additional courses in biology.
  • Students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in analytical or bioanalytical chemistry should take MATH 141 .
