*Two physics sequences will satisfy the chemistry major: Physics 101 and 102 or Physics 105 and 106. Physics 105 and 106 have concurrent calculus enrollment requirements.
For students interested in studying abroad, the recommended semester(s) is: fall or spring, fourth year. Consult with the Chemistry Department Chair if you have a strong interest in studying abroad prior to the senior year.
Students must complete two semesters of Calculus (or Analysis) and a Physics sequence before taking the required Physical Chemistry sequence.Students who have scored a 4 or 5 on the Calculus BC Advanced Placement exam should consult with the Chemistry Department Chair to discuss mathematics options.
CHEM 499 can be taken anytime from the Spring of year two onward.
Chemistry students are strongly encouraged to participate in research as part of their education. It is never too early to talk to faculty and learn about becoming involved.
