6 additional credit hours from chemistry courses at the 300 or 400 level. (Only BCMB 419 may also count towards the 6 additional credit hours outside Chemistry.)
For students planning careers in chemistry, the recommended courses (from the list above) are MATH 132* or MATH 141*-MATH 142*, PHYS 135*-PHYS 136* or PHYS 137*-PHYS 138*; although not required, certain additional courses are strongly suggested for students planning to become chemists: MATH 241 and CHEM 306. Because professional chemists need a reading knowledge of foreign languages, intermediate level competency should be acquired in German, French, Russian or Japanese. Students who are undecided about their career goals should consult the head of the department at the earliest opportunity. Unlike the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, the regular Bachelor of Science degree is not approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society.
Chemistry – Honors Concentration
Candidates for the honors concentration must fulfill all of the requirements for either the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry or the regular Bachelor of Science degree and must satisfy the following stipulations:
