The American Chemical Society (ACS) has developed national guidelines for Bachelors programs in chemistry and approved chemistry programs that meet these standards by offering “a broad-based and rigorous chemistry education that gives students intellectual, experimental, and communication skills to become effective scientific professionals.”
Note: students with AP, IB, or A-level credit may qualify for course equivalency or an exemption from CHEM 150/151 or CHEM 150/151 and 160/161. Such students should consult with the department chair. Students receiving an exemption but not credit equivalency can complete the major with 4 to 8 fewer total credits.
II. Electives (8 Credits)
Students must complete two additional courses, at least one of which must include a lab (indicated by *).
