2013–2014 Chemistry Program (CHEM)
Faculty: Frank Black, William Deutschman, Paul Hooker (Chair), Robyn Hyde, Tricia Shepherd
The Chemistry Program offers an academic major leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree. In addition, the program offers an academic minor and a teaching minor in chemistry. The program provides (1) preparation for a professional career or graduate study in chemistry; (2) an understanding of basic chemistry concepts and experience in laboratory operations for those planning careers in related fields; (3) pre-professional study for those preparing for careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, and nursing; and (4) preparation for those who wish to teach at the secondary level.
Students must maintain a cumulative 2.3 GPA or better in courses required in the academic major. Students choosing a double major or minor within the science program may not apply electives to more than one major or minor. Only classes listed under “required courses” that coincide between both majors/minors may be applied to both.
Students must meet the college-wide graduation requirements in addition to the Chemistry major:
