Bachelor of Science in Chemistry

The Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry (214*/40.0501) consists of at least 23 semester hours above the freshman level. the required courses are CHE 2201 and CHE 2203, CHE 2210 and CHE 2211, CHE 3000, CHE 3301, CHE 3303, CHE 3404, and seven hours selected from other Chemistry courses. The Chemistry major must take PHY 1150-PHY 1151; an additional six to eight hours in either astronomy, biology, geology, or physics (courses at the 1000 level and phy 3350 are not accepted); and MAT 1110 and MAT 1120.

The student must also select a concentration in a career support area. This concentration must be approved by the department uponentering the Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. The concentrations currently available are listed below:

  • Certified Chemist Concentration (214B) - The required courses, in addition to those listed above, are CHE 2202, CHE 2204, CHE 3302, CHE 3304, CHE 3405, CHE 4000, CHE 4400 or CHE 4510, CHE 3560, CHE 3561 and CHE 4580. CHE 3520 and CHE 4610 are not accepted. A course(s) in computer programming is strongly recommended.
