Bachelor of Science in Chemistry
Students seeking the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) major in chemistry must complete a concentration of 35 or more semester hours in chemistry coursework. In addition to the chemistry core curriculum and required support courses, B.S. chemistry majors are required to complete a minimum of six semester hours of upper division technical electives. Technical electives are considered to be courses taken from biology (BIO), computer science (CIS), mathematics (MAT), physical science (PHS), physics (PHY), and science and Christian faith (SCF). As additional graduation requirements, B.S. degree chemistry majors must take the Major Field Assessment Test (MFT) and the departmental Chemistry Core Curriculum Assessment Test (ChemCAT) for graduation.
