Undergraduate Program

Other Approved 200-Level Science Courses for the Chemistry BA Program

The Chemistry BA program requires "two additional (8 credits) 200-level (or higher) Chemistry courses or Other Approved Science Courses from this listing on this page. Permission of the Undergraduate Studies Committee is required to use a course that is not a Chemistry 200-Level course, and is also not on this listing (below).

No more than four credits may be from laboratory courses. Course titles & semesters offered are subject to change, please consult an advisor regarding your individual program requirements. For a complete list of chemistry courses please see our chemistry website course listing, or the CDCS.
