a MTH 112 can be taken to prepare for MTH 251 if the score on ALEKS Math Placement test is 59% or less. MTH 112 is not a required course for the chemistry degree.

b Chemistry majors are strongly encouraged to take the chemistry major's orientation course, "Careers in Chemistry", Fall Term. This is 1cr (P/N).

c BI 109, Health Professions: Medical - is a Pre-Med Orientation course and strongly suggested. This is a 1 cr (P/N). A Pre-Dental orientation course is taught winter term (BI 107).

d CH 324, an analytical chemistry course, is taught every term. The combination of CH 421, CH 422, and CH 461 may be substituted for CH 324 for students who desire the strongest background in analytical chemistry. With these three analytical chemistry courses, only one inorganic chemistry course is required (CH 411) so that the required credit hours only increases by 2 compared to program shown in the table. Note that CH 421 and CH 461 are taught only Fall term and CH 422 is given only winter term.


The order of courses is suggested. For the track-two core courses (CH, MTH, PH), the order is very critical because of prerequisites and the fact that most CH courses are taught only one term per year. The option courses (BI, BB, ST 351, PH 444) can be taken at different times than indicated, but one must be concerned with the prerequisites for BB courses and upper division BI courses and the fact that many upper division BB and some upper division BI courses are taught only one term per year.

Bacc core courses are not shown in the table but are specified at Baccalaureate Core Requirements

Students in this option should also meet with the chief premed adviser for the College of Science. Drs. Walker, Myles and Sleszynski are the premed advisers in the Department of Chemistry.
