For the B.S. in Chemistry, Four Electives from the following list:

At least two of these electives must be chemistry courses. Up to two electives may be math courses, which can be used to fulfill a math minor.

Chemistry:
  • Inorganic Chemistry II (CHEM 412)
  • Environmental Chemistry (CHEM 452)
  • Advanced Organic Chemistry (CHEM 503)
  • Advanced Instrumental Analysis (CHEM 565)
  • Mass Spectrometry Instrumental Analysis (CHEM 566)
Math:
  • Linear Algebra (MATH 310)
  • Differential Equations (MATH 314)
  • Biostatistics II (MATH 335)

Additional Notes:

  • Undergraduate Research is strongly encouraged during junior year (or before)
  • University UCOR courses will vary by semester
  • All prerequisites must be met with a C or better
  • CHEM 490W is not required; however, it is highly recommended
  • Other approved Science/Math Electives must be at the 300-500 level
