The curriculum requires courses in each of the traditional areas of chemistry; e.g., analytical, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry. Elective courses in biochemistry and environmental chemistry also are available. Required courses in mathematics and physics support this curriculum. To provide maximum flexibility, courses above general chemistry can be taken in almost any order. Chemistry majors must also complete the University core, or general education curriculum appropriate to the degree they seek.
A solid preparation in high school mathematics and chemistry is expected.
