The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry - General Chemistry is accredited by the American Chemical Society. The general chemistry major prepares the graduate for the many diverse career opportunities available to the chemist in government, private industry and academia.
The general chemistry major is similar to the research chemistry major but with greater flexibility for the addition of electives during the senior year. It also provides excellent preparation for professional or graduate schools, or for a career in industry.
Candidates for a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry - General Chemistry must complete the minimum course requirements as indicated. Deviation from the recommended program can be made only with the approval of the student’s advisor and the concurrence of the department head.
Because the subject matter in general chemistry forms a critically important foundation for all of the advanced chemistry courses, both CHM 1101 and CHM 1102 must be passed with grades of at least C before taking any other chemistry courses.
