Chemistry Major Curriculum


The curriculum provides the chemistry courses upon which individualized programs may be constructed. Specific programs are arranged by students in consultation with their advisor and must be approved by the chairperson of the Department of Chemistry.

Course Sequence Outline


Freshman Year


Subsequent years:


In the sophomore year: Chemistry majors generally take Reaction and Mechanism, Quantitative Analysis,  and Physics. Depending on initial placement, students will complete the modern or classical language requirement.  The remainder of the schedule is filled by chemistry electives, other core requirements, general electives, or courses for a minor or double major.

In the junior year: Chemistry majors generally take Physical Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry and Instrumental Analysis, and complete the Research and Seminar I requirement in the fall semester.  Students will choose core requirements, general electives or courses for a minor or double major to complete the schedule.

In the senior year: Chemistry majors generally take Research and Seminar II courses in the fall and Integrated Laboratory in the spring. Students finish any core requirements, general electives or courses for a minor or double major to complete the schedule.

Note:


  • CH 420  Research and Seminar I carries no credit but is a prerequisite for CH421
  • CH 340   Inorganic Chemistry may be completed in either the sophomore or junior year.
