The chemistry program covers the four main branches of chemistry, namely organic, inorganic, physical and analytical. In addition students may specialize in clinical analysis. In all cases theoretical knowledge is both reinforced and supplemented by a diverse selection of experimental work, a necessary facet of chemistry.
Bachelor of Science
The objective of the B.S. chemistry major is to train students in both the theory and practice of the major branches of chemistry. Our broad chemistry training prepares students to work in such diverse field as research and development, teaching, quality control and industrial production e.g. heavy organic and inorganic chemicals, fertilizers, fine chemicals such as pharmaceuticals and petroleum products. The specialized students may also work in clinical labs.
A student who intends to major in chemistry must complete Chemistry 105 and 115 with a minimum of a C average, or if declaring the major before the completion of these two courses, should have obtained a minimum of 70% in Thanawia Amma chemistry, or equivalent in other certificates.
A total of 131 credits is required for the bachelor's degree in chemistry:
Core Curriculum (40 credits)
The science requirements of the core curriculum electives are satisfied by the collateral requirements of the major.
Concentration Requirements (50 credits)
