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:

Electives (10 credits)

Chemistry Minor

The minor in chemistry provides students with a workable knowledge of the basic principles of chemistry and some of their applications. Students may choose to concentrate on one of the following particular areas: Analytical, Inorganic, Organic, or Physical Chemistry.

The minor in chemistry is comprised of 16-18 credits. CHEM. 105-106, CHEM. 115L-116L and 8-10 credits of higher level courses in chemistry to be chosen in consultation with a faculty member.

Archaeological Chemistry Minor

This minor in archaeological chemistry provides students with the necessary knowledge for the elucidation of some archaeological problems. The minor is of particular value to arts or Egyptology students.

Students choosing this should have Thanawiya ĎAmma Science or equivalent and will have to take CHEM 105 and 115L as part of their general science or core curriculum requirements.

Requirements for the minor CHEM 106, 116L, 206, 216L, 311, 312, 410. Total credits in chemistry: 21.
