Bachelor of Science in Chemistry - Biochemistry Concentration
This sequence includes the chemistry courses required for the ACS (American Chemical Society) Approved Bachelor of Science Degree. Research experience is highly recommended, including CHE 290, which has been designed as an introductory research experience for sophomore students. A total of one upper-level elective (this would include research) is required with completion of CHE 301/445/496. Completion of University Requirements and 12 elective credits completes the minimum of 120 credits for the degree.
(*Starting point: math placement in Precalculus)
(**Research is not a requirement for ACS Approved Degrees or completion of the Biochemistry Concentration, but meets the lab elective requirement and is strongly suggested as an elective in the fourth year.)
