The minimum requirements for a chemistry major are twenty-five (25) credits of science major chemistry courses, two semesters of physics with laboratory and Calculus I (MATH 131 , or MATH 125 and MATH 126 ) and II (MATH 132 ).
While calculus-based General Physics PHYS 121 , PHYS 141 , PHYS 122 and PHYS 142 are recommended for the B.A. degree and are required for the B.S. degree, students seeking the B.A. degree may wish to consult their academic advisor to discuss if College Physics PHYS 105 , PHYS 106 , PHYS 107 and PHYS 108 are appropriate for their program of study.
The chemistry courses must include: CHEM 125 , CHEM 126 (or CHEM 131 ), CHEM 221 , CHEM 231 ; six credits of laboratory courses (e.g., CHEM 127 , CHEM 128 (or CHEM 132 ), CHEM 255 and 256A and 256B; CHEM 315 , CHEM 324 , CHEM 332 , CHEM 335 , CHEM 345 or other laboratory courses may be included in these 6 credits; and two courses selected from CHEM 311 , CHEM 322 , CHEM 331 and CHEM 332 or CHEM 343 . (CHEM 331 and CHEM 332 must be taken together and are considered one course.) A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required for the science-major chemistry courses.
