The School of Health and Natural Sciences offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and the Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry. The Bachelor of Science program is designed for students planning graduate study in chemistry and related fields of science or careers as professional chemists. The Bachelor of Arts degree program provides the flexibility that satisfies the objectives of students in Pre- Medicine, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Optometry, Pre-Dentistry, other allied health fields, and teaching in secondary schools. A grade of ‘C’ or better must be earned in each Chemistry course, with an overall cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above. Grades in chemistry courses of C- or less cannot be counted toward either chemistry major. Students are strongly advised to retake any course with a D, particularly courses in biology, physics, or mathematics.
This degree program requires at least 122 semester hours for completion.
