Chemistry, Bachelor of Science Degree with a Minor From Other Discipline (non-ACS Track)

This program of study includes a number of fundamental courses in chemistry and allows for students with interests in additional disciplines to build a broad based curriculum. Students will be required to complete the same courses as in Area A through Area F of the B.S. in Chemistry degree program (ACS track). However, in Area G they will be allowed to take a minimum of 15 hours (at least 5 credits in 3000 level or higher) of electives from one other discipline based on that discipline’s minor requirements (e.g. Business or Biology) in place of the 15 hours of required electives which are primarily chemistry courses.
