Notes:

  1. Satisfy American Chemical Society guidelines for certification of the Chemistry major, the two hours of CHEM 3600 (860:180) Undergraduate Research required for this program must be taken after completion of CHEM 4420/5420 (860:140g) Physical Chemistry: Thermodynamics; CHEM 4430/5430 (860:141g) Physical Chemistry: Kinetics, Quantum Mechanics, and Spectroscopy; or both CHEM 2230 (860:121) Organic Chemistry Laboratory and CHEM 2310 (860:132) Quantitative Analysis. In addition, completion of a final written report is required.
  2. Students wishing to earn a non-certified Bachelor of Science degree may omit CHEM 4110/5110 (860:145g) , CHEM 4610/5610 (860:149g) , and CHEM 4510/5510 (860:154g), but must include three additional elective hours in chemistry at the 100/4000-level or higher. Also, these students may satisfy the Physics requirement of the degree with PHYSICS 1511 (880:054) and PHYSICS 1512 (880:056) alone.
  3. Elective courses should be chosen with the help of the major advisor. This is particularly important for students wishing to earn a certified degree, to assure consistency with the certification guidelines of the American Chemical Society. An appropriate advanced course in another science may be substituted with department head approval.

Emphasis-Honors Research

This emphasis is available to qualified students pursuing the Bachelor of Science program by invitation at the beginning of their junior year. Completion of Honors Research requires 5 credit hours in CHEM 3600 (860:180) Undergraduate Research (at least 2 hours of which must be taken after completion of CHEM 4420/5420 (860:140g) Physical Chemistry: Thermodynamics or CHEM 4430/5430 (860:141g) Physical Chemistry: Kinetics, Quantum Mechanics, and Spectroscopy) and the writing of a senior research thesis. The research credit may be applied to the elective hours of the B.S. degree.

Bachelor of Arts Degree Programs
