Department Information
The department offers three majors. In each major, courses in the first two years emphasize fundamental topics in chemistry, mathematics, and physics. Students then choose advanced courses in chemistry and related areas to complete the requirements in their major.

These majors provide opportunities for practical experience in chemistry. Students are encouraged to do research on campus with a faculty member, and to participate in the department’s seminar program. Two minors are offered to supplement career related fields.

Department Standards
Students must have earned a grade of C- or higher in all prerequisites to be admitted to a course. To graduate, all chemistry majors are required to achieve at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA and a 2.25 GPA in courses required for the major. To receive a minor in chemistry, students are required to achieve a 2.25 GPA in courses required for the minor.

Lab Fees
All chemistry labs have fees associated with them that must be paid when registering for the course.
