Chemistry Undergraduate Program

B.A. in Chemistry: Chemistry Major

• All of the "Common Requirements" for the B.A. degree from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (see the Undergraduate Catalog).

• One year of calculus: either MATH 115 and 116 or MATH 121 and 122.

• One year of physics: either PHSX 114 and 115 or PHSX 211 and 212.

• The following chemistry courses:

Course Hours
CHEM 170  (or 130, or 190) Chemistry for the Chemical Sciences Ia 5
CHEM 175  (or 135, or 195) Chemistry for the Chemical Sciences IIa 5
CHEM 180 Seminar I 0.5
CHEM 310 or 330 (or 380) Organic Chemistry Ic, d 3
CHEM 331 Organic Chemistry I Laboratory 2
CHEM 510 (or 530) Physical Chemistrye 3
CHEM 511 (or 531) Physical Chemistry Laboratory 2
CHEM 620 Analytical Chemistryb 3
CHEM 621 Analytical Chemistry Laboratoryb 2
CHEM 695 Seminar II 0.5
One of the following courses 3 - 4

CHEM 335 Organic Chemistry II (CHEM 336 is highly recommended for students taking 335)d

 

or CHEM 535 Physical Chemistry II (CHEM 530 is a prerequisite)

 

or CHEM 635 and 636 Instrumental Methods of Analysis and Laboratory

 

or CHEM 667 Inorganic Chemistry

 

or another 600 Level Chemistry Course

 

Total: 29 - 30 hours

a See page 20 for information on Advanced Standing.
b CHEM 620 and 621 must be taken concurrently.
c For students who elect to take only one semester of Organic Chemistry, it is recommended that CHEM 310 be substituted for CHEM 330.
d Students in a pre-medical curriculum should be aware that a full year of Organic Chemistry lecture and laboratory (CHEM 330 or 380, 331, 335 or 385, 336) is required for admission to virtually all medical schools.
e Note that CHEM 530 has MATH 121, 122 and PHSX 211, 212 as prerequisites whereas MATH 115, 116 and PHSX 114, 115 are acceptable for CHEM 510.
