Additional Information

In order to complete the major, three additional, three-credit courses above the 100 level are required. These may be in chemistry (Chemistry 305 does not satisfy this requirement) but may also be in relevant areas of biology, geology, mathematics or physics, subject to departmental approval. A list of courses fulfilling this requirement is available from the chemistry department.

Students intending to pursue graduate work in chemistry or in an allied interdisciplinary field should select their programs with care. Unless an interdisciplinary program of graduate work is contemplated, students should elect advanced chemistry courses, including 401 and/or 402 to complete the major. Close consultation with their department advisors will assure development of programs which can be recommended for graduate work.

The Department of Chemistry is fully accredited by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society.
