Chemistry & Physical Science Requirements

General Education

CHE 151 can be combined with SCI 142 or BIO 153 toward the general education/core requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree or with two other science courses for the Bachelor of Science degree. It cannot be combined with SCI 143 toward the core requirement. Note: MAT 105 is a prerequisite for CHE 151 and SCI 143.

GLY 160, 200, 300 and 400 can be used toward fulfillment of the core/general education requirement for science in the Bachelor of Science degree. GLY 160 cannot be combined with SCI 141 toward fulfillment of these requirements.

PHY 151 can be combined with SCI 142 or BIO 153 toward the core/general education requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree or with two other Science courses toward the Bachelor of Science degree. It cannot be combined with SCI 143 toward these requirements.


Chemistry

Type of degree(s) awarded: B.A., B.S., A.S.

Requirements for the major in Chemistry: 30 s.h. in chemistry courses at the 300 level or higher which will include CHE 311, 312, 321, 322, 421 or 422 (an additional 10 s.h. can be completed from chemistry electives at the 300 level or higher. CHE 310 & 450 are highly recommended), CHE 486 or 487 (Senior Seminar Research Project), PHY 151 or 251, PHY 152 or 252, and MAT 231, 232, and 220.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a concentration in Biochemistry: CHE 151, 152, 311, 321, 322, 421, 450, 460, either 486 or 487 (Senior Seminar Research Project), BIO 153, 396, 440 (additional Biology course electives are recommended from the pool of BIO 306, 307, 400, 401), MAT 220, 231 and 232, and PHY 151 or 251 and 152 or 252. Students pursuing this concentration must still satisfy the requirement for 30 s.h. in chemistry at the 300 level or higher.

Requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a concentration in Forensic Science: CHE 151, 152, 311, 312, 321, 322, 450, either 486 or 487; and an additional Chemistry elective at the 300 level or higher; MAT 220, 231 and 232; PHY 151 and 152; BIO 153, BIO 307 or 396, BIO 317 or 321; JUS 242, 309, 389, 401, 420 and 470*.

* Under special circumstances and with the permission of the Justice Studies and Chemistry department chairs, an appropriate course may replace JUS 470.

Requirements for the minor in Chemistry: 16 s.h. in 300-level chemistry courses.

Requirements for the A.S. with a subject concentration in Chemistry: CHE 151 and 152 plus at least 12 s.h. of 300- or higher-level courses for a total of at least 20 s.h. in chemistry; SCI 141 and 142; MAT 105 or higher.

Writing-enrichment courses: CHE 321, 322, 486, and 487
