B.S. Chemistry

A suggested sequence for taking the required science courses is given below. Students who opt for a variation from the suggested sequence should check to ensure that course prerequisites have been satisfied. Because many courses have structured prerequisites, major deviations from this schedule could increase the time required to obtain the degree.  Students pursuing this degree must complete 8 of the 9 General Education Objectives (a minimum of 36 credits - see the General Education Requirements described in the Academic Information section of this catalog).

Students working on a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry should complete ENGL 1101 or ENGL 1101P, and COMM 1101 during the freshman year, and ENGL 1102 should be passed by, or during, the sophomore year. (General Education Objective 1 is satisfied by taking ENGL 1101 or ENGL 1101P, AND ENGL 1102. General Education Objective 2 is satisfied by COMM 1101.) The mathematics requirement (Objective 3) should be fulfilled by MATH 1170 and MATH 1175 as early as feasible.
