Chemistry Major for ACS Certified B.S.


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The American Chemical Society certified degree program offers students exposure to each of the major sub-disciplines of chemistry: analytical, organic, inorganic, physical, and biochemical. Because this degree plan is an extended major, no minor is required. A grade of “C-” or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the bachelor’s degree.

Electives


An additional 6 semester hours of upper-division, chemistry electives are required and should be selected in consultation with the Department of Chemistry. The senior experience in Chemistry (CHE 4950) does not count as an elective. Students may take any senior experience approved by the University.

The following courses may be appropriate electives:
