Other advanced courses in related science disciplines (including those in other colleges) beyond the introductory level as well as math-related courses that have at least Calculus II (or the equivalent) as a prerequisite may also be acceptable. Consult with your chemistry advisor for more details or to seek approval for a course that is not on the list. CHEM:4430 and CHEM:4450 cannot be used to satisfy the BS electives requirement. Consult with your chemistry advisor for more details or to seek approval for a course that is not on the list.

B.A. Science Electives

B.A. students must complete a total of 6 s.h. of elective courses chosen from the following list. Some of these courses may be used to fulfill other requirements for the major. Students who have used a course from this list to fulfill another requirement for the major may not use that course as an elective. Undergraduate Research, CHEM:3994, may not be used to satisfy the electives requirement.

  • Department of Chemistry:
    • CHEM:3110 Analytical Chemistry Ia
    • CHEM:3120 Analytical Chemistry IIa
    • CHEM:4431 Physical Chemistry Ib
    • CHEM:4432 Physical Chemistry IIb
    • CHEM:3430 Analytical Measurementsc
    • CHEM:3440 Physical Measurementsc
    • CHEM:3530 Inorganic Chemistry Laboratoryc
    • CHEM:4270 Advanced Inorganic Chemistry
    • CHEM:4171 Advanced Analytical Chemistry
    • CHEM:4372 Advanced Organic Chemistry
