Chemistry, B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments and Degrees

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.
