Minors

  • Chemistry

Major programs are offered by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in two baccalaureate degree areas:

  • the Bachelor of Science and
  • the Bachelor of Arts

1. Students considering a baccalaureate chemistry major should complete two semesters of general chemistry, CHEM 1110 (860:044) and CHEM 1120 (860:048), in the freshman year. Well-prepared students may be permitted to take CHEM 1130 (860:070), an accelerated course in general chemistry, during their first semester. It is strongly recommended that chemistry majors complete requirements in mathematics and physics within the first two years.

2. Prior to enrollment in a chemistry course, all pre-requisite courses must be completed with a grade of C- or higher.

3. A student enrolled in a chemistry course during fall or spring semester and who wishes to enroll in the same course in the subsequent spring or fall semester should contact the department.  The student will be allowed to register only if space remains after all advance registrations are completed.

Notes:

  1. To 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 include completion of a final written report.
  2. 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.
  3. 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. 

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 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

Biochemistry Major

The B.A. Biochemistry major requires a minimum of 120 total hours to graduate. This total includes Liberal Arts Core requirements and the following specified major requirements, plus electives to complete the minimum of 120 hours.

This program provides experience in most basic areas of chemistry, with a focus on biochemistry. With appropriate choice of university electives, the B.A. Biochemistry major meets the needs of pre-medical students and students preparing for additional study in related areas such as pharmacology, medicinal chemistry, clinical chemistry, and toxicology. It is also suitable for students who wish to combine a chemistry major with a major in another discipline.
