This sequence includes the chemistry courses required for the ACS (American Chemical
Society) Approved Bachelor of Science Degree. Research experience is highly recommended.
A total of two upper-level electives (this would include research) are required with
completion of CHE 301/445/496. At least one elective in chemistry must include laboratory
exercises. Completion of University Requirements and 21-22 elective credits completes
the minimum of 122 credits for the degree.
(*Starting point: math placement in Precalculus)
(**Research is not a requirement for ACS Approved Degrees or completion of the Chemistry
Concentration, but meets the lab elective requirement and is strongly suggested as
an elective in the fourth year.)
First year requirements and cognates:
General Chemistry I & II (CHE 120/121 - fall/spring)
Precalculus* (MAT 122 - fall)
Calculus I (MAT 150 - spring)
Second year requirements and cognates:
Organic Chemistry I & II (CHE 260/261 - fall/spring)
