Typical BS Chemistry Schedule

Although students may choose to take a schedule similar to the B.A. degree, but with two additional, advanced three-credit-hour courses, students interested in research are encouraged to take the schedule below--with physical chemistry in the junior year--in order to leave the senior year open for research in chemistry.
