The Chemistry major is designed to provide the student with a general background in chemistry and to develop skills so that one is prepared for (1) graduate studies in chemistry; (2) entrance into professional schools such as medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, or veterinary medicine; (3) entry-level positions in chemical research laboratories or environmental control laboratories; and (4) chemistry teaching positions.
General Education Competencies
The general education speech and intercultural requirements can be met by enrolling in COM-110, Speech Communications, and any intercultural activity approved by the general education committee. For chemistry majors/minors, a grade of "C" is required in all chemistry and required cognate courses. Non-majors must obtain a grade of "C" in all prerequisite coursework. Only courses numbered 125 or higher will be counted toward the major or minor.
