Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry Track, BS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The Environmental Chemistry Track is a program designed for students interested in the application of chemical concepts to the environment. This degree program will prepare students for industrial positions for graduate programs in either field.

Since lower level courses in GEOL (Physical & Historical GEOL & labs, 8 sch) and BIOL (Gen. Biology I & lab, 4 sch) are additional pre-requisites for the ENSC courses, fewer total courses in Chemistry are required in this track. In addition to the General Education courses, there are 31 sch of common science, 35 sch total CHEM (with 27 UL) and 21 total ENSC, all UL, requirements. This degree plan does not require a separate minor. Depending upon each student’s level of readiness for college courses, pre-calculus can be counted within the total sch for the degree, but calculus II is highly recommended.

The total semester credit hours required for a B. S. in Chemistry is 120.
