The Bachelor of Arts degree program in chemistry is intended to provide a background in chemistry, but not in the depth required for a bachelor of science degree. This program, when complemented with study in other areas, will serve as preparation for a career in chemical and related industries or secondary science education. The bachelor of arts program is also an appropriate preparation for medical, dental, law, and pharmacy schools. Students may also wish to contact the Health Professions Advising Office in the Jensen Student Access to Sciences and Mathematics Center (HSC-164) for additional information and services. In order to take full advantage of the bachelor of arts program for various career objectives, adequate counseling by chemistry advisors is indispensable. Each student must confer with an advisor to set up his/her individually tailored program in chemistry and one or more complementary areas prior to beginning the course of study.
Chemistry majors must achieve a grade of "C" or better in each course required for the major.
Students must consult an advisor to select additional courses to meet the student's individual goals and interests.
