Course Requirements

The major requires 40 hours, of which a minimum of 28 are upper division. A grade of C or better is required in the 28 hour Chemistry major core courses. *MATH 2306  is required as a prerequisite for CHEM 4405  and CHEM 4406 . **MATH 1306 Elementary Statistics , MSCI 2311 Scientific Computing , and MSCI 3101  are required courses for all math and science majors. ***Only 4 hours from MSCI 4X03 and MSCI 4360  may be counted towards the 12 hours of chemistry electives. MATH 1306  and MSCI 2311  can each be used to fulfill three hours of general education and degree core requirements in math and computer literacy, respectively.

Possible Sequence of Courses

Bachelor of Science in Chemistry Possible Sequence of Courses - the following is ONE four year schedule that would result in the B.S. degree in chemistry. Many other permutations of this plan are possible including additional majors and/or minors in other disciplines. All upper-level science courses are on rotation making an exact duplicate of this four-year plan impossible for some students. This plan is intended as a guide only. Students are strongly encouraged to choose their courses in consultation with their advisor.
