Double Major

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:

Courses Hours
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.

Students in departments other than Biology and Agricultural Biotechnology should consult the Chemistry B.A. requirements to see whether a double major is feasible for them.

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.

The most authoritative information about our Chemistry Undergraduate Programs is available in the Bulletin/Course Catalog issued the year the student started the program.
