The Department of Chemistry offers two curriculum degree plans, an American Chemical Society certified BS and also a BA.

  • Because the study of chemistry requires preparation in other supportive courses, students should begin meeting major requirements in their first year.
  • Students interested in declaring Chemistry as their major may do so at any time, however students must declare a major by the first semester of their junior year (sometime between 45-60 credit hours).
  • For more Information or to set up an advising appointment, please contact:
