The B.S. degree requires 40 credit hours of chemistry.  This major meets the minimum entrance requirements of many graduate programs in chemistry. Variations within the above program may be recommended by the Department. Transfer students must complete a minimum of half of the required major credit hours in residence in the Department. Students should make certain that math and physics prerequisites are fulfilled in a timely manner. For students who plan to do graduate work in physical chemistry, a double minor is recommended: Mathematics and Computer Science through 310 and 311, Physics through 350 and 360.
