Requirements for the chemistry major, in addition to the University degree
requirements outlined within this Bulletin, are:
1. Courses in chemistry--at least 39 credits (for the B.A. degree), or 42 to 45
(for the B.S.),
including the following (with variations as authorized by the
department): CHEM 113 & 103 General Chemistry I (and Lab) CHEM 114 & 104 General Chemistry II (and Lab) CHEM 233 & 203 Organic Chemistry I (and Lab) CHEM 234 & 206 Organic Chemistry II and Organic/Analytical
Chemistry Lab) CHEM 341-342 Physical Chemistry I & II CHEM 470 Analytical Chemistry
The remaining hours in chemistry, sufficient to reach required total, should be
chosen in consultation with the department. Qualified seniors should take the
graduate Chemistry Colloquium, CHEM 501-502.
2. Required cognates (17 cr.):
MATH 120 Calculus I MATH 130 Calculus II PHYS 130 & 130L University Physics I (and Lab) PHYS 140 & 140L University Physics II (and Lab)
An additional 3-hour mathematics or computer science course approved
by the Chemistry Department.
3. Mathematics requirement--In lieu of core mathematics course (CORE
130), chemistry majors meet the mathematics requirement by means of
the cognate coursework in mathematics described above.
Chemistry majors are advised to include, among their general elective
coursework, additional study in mathematics and computer science.
