Biology and Agricultural Biotechnology majors often choose this option, because the courses required by their home departments already satisfy most of the Chemistry department requirements! Only the following additional courses are usually required to secure a second major in Chemistry:
|MA 114 Calculus II||4|
|CHE 223 Organic Lab II|
|CHE 226 Analytical Chemistry||3|
|CHE 440G Physical Chemistry||4|
|CHE 441G Physical Chemistry Laboratory||2|
|CHE 572 Communication in Chemistry||1*|
|5 additional CHE electives of course number 300 or greater|
*One additional credit of a communications class is required in the home department.
Note that if your home department is not in the College of Arts & Sciences, you do not need to fulfill the A&S requirements to earn a second major in Chemistry.
Premedical students will find that a second Chemistry major immeasurably improves their chances of getting into the medical school of their choice. And if medicine turns out not to be their career of choice, the Chemistry major provides many more options for alternative vocations.
