Six hours of 300-400 level CHEM, BIOL, and/or ENVR


Note: CHEM 390, 411, 499; BIOL 398, 480, 498, 499; ENVR 490 and 499 cannot be used to fulfill this requirement. Approved BIOL and ENVR courses require prerequisites.

A grade of C or better in CHEM 409 is required to demonstrate practical, written, computer and oral competency in chemistry.

Additional Information


In fulfilling requirements for the B.A. chemistry degree, students should consider the following guidelines when choosing courses to tailor their educations:

  • Students interested in the pre-health professions are recommended to take BIOL 136. They should also take CHEM 437 as one of their two required 300-400 level courses with the second course being in Biology (BIOL 338, 339, 344, 434, 443, or a course recommended by their advisor, depending on their professional school focus). This focus is recommended for students wishing to attend medical, dental, pharmacy or veterinary school. Students should consult their advisor on tailoring the B.A. Chemistry degree to specific health professions.
