By appropriate choice of required and free electives, students in this Concentration can meet the requirements for American Chemical Society Certification. It would be necessary to take Advanced Inorganic Chemistry and Lab (CE-401, CE-401L), Physical Chemistry I and Lab (CE-341, CE-341L) and/or Computational Chemistry and Molecular Modeling (CE-475). Additional laboratory credits would also be required as Research in Chemistry (CE-350). The Department Chair should be consulted for details.

Notes

  • 58 credits must be completed at the 200 level or higher.
