Students who aspire to careers as professional chemists should seek to obtain the Bachelor of Science. Students must complete the core courses listed below plus one of the four tracks:
General Chemistry Track (ACS Certified)
Pharmaceutical Sciences Track
Students majoring in chemistry are urged to participate in independent research (CHE 292 or CHE 492) and are also encouraged to take at least one year of a foreign language and additional mathematics coursework beyond the required Calculus II. A student completing the Bachelor of Science in chemistry is not required to complete a minor or a focus.
The general chemistry track is approved by the American Chemical Society, as it meets certain requirements prescribed by that organization. Students may also receive ACS approval in the Bachelor of Science Biochemistry and Forensics tracks by selecting appropriate course options as indicated below.
