Minimum required major and supporting course work normally equates to 48-51 hours including at least 30 hours in Chemistry or Biochemistry courses
General education: Students must complete the Campus General Education requirements including the campus general education language requirement.
Twelve hours of 300- or 400-level courses in Chemistry and/or Biochemistry must be taken on this campus.
NOTE:Transfer credit in chemistry must be approved by an adviser in chemistry in order to be included in the 30 hours.
Minimum hours required for graduation: 120 hours
Departmental distinction: Students qualify for graduation with distinction by exhibiting superior performance in both course work and in senior thesis research. To be eligible, a student must have a major grade point average of 3.25, must take CHEM 499 (normally for two semesters) and submit a senior thesis for evaluation, and must have their undergraduate research advisor submit to the department Head a letter of support attesting to the effort invested by the student. The minimum major GPAs for Distinction, High Distinction, and Highest Distinction are 3.25, 3.5, and 3.75 respectively. Final decisions on awarding Distinction honors will be made by the Head or designee.
