To declare chemistry as a major, students are required to have passed General Chemistry I and II (or the equivalent courses for transfer students) with grades of C or higher. Other courses required for the chemistry major, including support courses but excluding the senior project, must be completed with a grade of C- or higher.
In addition to meeting general degree requirements, all chemistry majors must complete the following requirements:
Chemistry Courses (47 credits)
A minimum cumulative 2.0 (C) GPA is required in all chemistry courses, excluding the senior project:
Support Courses (18 credits)
Chemistry majors who choose this concentration conduct their senior project in the general subject area of biochemistry. The following courses are to be taken in addition to those required for the major:
The chemistry program has a variety of chemistry and related courses tailored to prepare students who are interested in pursuing careers as high school chemistry teachers. Upon completion, the courses allow students to proceed for a “one year” master’s degree in education at one of the SUNY/CUNY campuses and subsequent certification.
