Program options for chemistry majors
A minor in chemistry is earned by taking General Chemistry I and II (105, 106), Organic Chemistry I and II (234&235, 334&335) and Analytical Chemistry I (311).
Majors may choose from several emphases:
Professional Chemistry (with a Biochemistry Option), Biomolecular Science, or Secondary Education.
The Professional Chemistry and Professional Biochemistry curricula, which have been approved by the American Chemical Society, prepare students to work in industrial or government labs, attend graduate school in science, or enter professional schools such as medical, dental, or law or pharmacy.
The newest emphasis is Biomolecular Science. This interdisciplinary option includes a significant number of courses from the Department of Biology. Recent modifications to the requirements increase the variety of courses students may choose from, allowing them to tailor the program to their personal interests. Students will be prepared to work in industrial or government labs, attend graduate school in science, or enter professional schools such as medical, dental, or law.
The Secondary Education emphasis prepares students to teach high school chemistry.
