3 Year Degree
- Considering course prerequisites, as outlined above, the curriculum for the BS degree in Chemistry can be completed in three years.
- The major hurdles in doing so are mathematics and physics.
- It is therefore very important that you take as much college preparatory chemistry, mathematics, and physics as possible.
- Consider taking Advanced Placement Courses and taking the exams to test out of their corresponding courses.
- The outline does not include other general requirements of the University, College of Science or Department of Chemistry, including a minor in biology, computer science, environmental science, geology, mathematics, physics or secondary education.
- Full course loads and summer school also will be required.
- Courses preceded by the number 1 offered year round, including summer, but are prerequisites for other courses.
- Courses preceded by the number 2 offered during the given semester.
- * CHEM 3330, Biochemistry (Structure and Function), could be taken in the fall instead of CHEM 3332.
- The Department also offers CHEM 4376-4176, Introduction to Research (year round), CHEM 4328 Advanced Topics in Organic Chemistry (once a year fall or spring), and CHEM 4362, Structure of Matter (every two years), as undergraduate electives.
- Please consult Dr. James Becvar, the undergraduate advisor, for further details about the BS or BA degrees in Chemistry, and about advance placement beyond general chemistry.
- This is not the only way to navigate through a BS degree in Chemistry but it is the shortest!
