Students who complete the Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry and include an advanced course in instrumental analysis (such as 3 units of CHEM 411, CHEM 421 or CHEM 423A, and CHEM 425) may qualify for degree certification by the American Chemical Society.
* With consent of the department, this may be substituted with CHEM 472B, CHEM 490, CHEM 492 or CHEM 499, all of which include a substantial research component with products that include a poster and paper. Consult the department chair for more information.
The Environmental Chemistry Emphasis may be integrated with the B.S. in Chemistry by using the above courses to meet career breadth, elective and research requirements. The environmental chemistry courses also can be used to satisfy requirements for the minor in chemistry.
