Chemistry Major Requirements

(44 credits, plus a concentration)

  • CHEM 105 General Chemistry 1 (fall)
  • CHEM 107 General Chemistry 2 (spring)
  • CHEM 211 Analytical Chemistry (fall)
  • CHEM 220 Organic Chemistry (fall)
  • CHEM 232 Organic Chemistry: Research Emphasis or CHEM 222 Organic Chemistry: Intermediate 
  • CHEM 330 Physical Chemistry 1 (fall)
  • CHEM 332 Physical Chemistry 2 (spring)
  • CHEM 350 Biochemistry 1
  • MATH 132 Calculus and Analytic Geometry 2
  • PHYS 121 General Physics 1 (fall) and PHYS 122 General Physics 2 (spring) or PHYS 111 Fundamentals of Physics 1 (fall) and PHYS 112 Fundamentals of Physics 2 (spring)

General Chemistry Concentration

  • CHEM 305 Inorganic Chemistry
  • Any two other chemistry courses numbered 300 or above

Biochemistry Concentration

  • BIOL 120 Introduction to Cell & Molecular Biology (fall)
  • BIOL 121 Introduction to Organismal Biology (spring)
  • BIOL 244 Genetics
  • BIOL 373 Molecular Biology (spring)
  • CHEM 305 Inorganic Chemistry or CHEM 310 Advanced Organic Chemistry
  • CHEM 351 Biochemistry 2

Students intending to go on to graduate studies should realize that mathematics courses such as MATH 233 and MATH 310 are required by many graduate programs in chemistry. In a paradigm where a choice is offered, we recommend the PHYS 121/PHYS 122 over the PHYS 111/PHYS 112 sequence and CHEM 232 over CHEM 222.
