Chemistry courses must be taken in order. Students need to be aware of the sequential and interrelated nature of the courses in chemistry, mathematics and physics.

Required Courses in the Freshman Year

First Semester     Second Semester
  • CHM 205 College Chemistry  I
  • MTH 201 Calculus I
  • BIO 201 Biology I
  • CHM 206 College Chemistry  II
  • MTH 202 Calculus II
  • BIO 202 Biology II

NOTE: Minimum grades of “C” in CHM 205 and CHM206 are required before students are allowed to take further chemistry courses in the major. 


Required Courses in the Sophomore Year

First Semester Second Semester
  •  CHM 305 Organic Chemistry  I
  • BIO 302 Genetics
  • PHS 235 Physics I
  •  CHM 306 Organic Chemistry  II
  • CHM 303 Analytical Chemistry I
  • PHS 240 Physics II


Prerequisite Courses

CHM 467, MTH 202, and PHS 235 or 240 are prerequisites for CHM 404 (taken in either the junior or senior year). CHM 306 is prerequisite for CHM 467 (taken in either the junior or senior year).


Further Recommendations

Depending on a student’s goals and interests, the major can be tailored to accommodate courses that are most appropriate.  This should be done through discussion with the student’s advisor.
