Chemistry major with secondary certification

Students desiring the Bachelor of Arts degree in Chemistry must take two years (four semester classes) of a foreign language. No foreign language is required for students seeking a Bachelor of Science degree; however, the study of German or Russian will be helpful to students seeking a career in research.

One minor is required for students seeking the B.A. or B.S. degree. Electives should be chosen to complete the requirement for a minor in another discipline. Students are encouraged to begin work on a minor by at least the start of the second year. 

A total of 127-132 semester hours is required for the baccalaureate degree in Chemistry. Schedule electives to satisfy general education requirements.
