Program in Chemistry

The Chemistry program is the most flexible program; it does not require the student to minor in a specific area.  Rather, students must choose their own minor which must include at least 18 semester hours.  The student also must follow the requirements of the University and the Department in which he/she wishes to minor.  This program is designed to allow a student the option to design a program to fit career and life goals that combine chemistry with other subjects.  It is especially relevant for students with nontraditional goals and those transferring from another major who have already accumulated significant hours in another field.  It is important for students following the Chemistry program to plan their course of study in close consultation with their academic advisors.
