The Nuclear Chemistry Track is a program designed for students eventually seeking employment in the nuclear energy industry or further graduate study in this important energy area

Additional courses in Math (Calculus III and Differential Equations) are considered as appropriate and/or formal pre-requisites for some of the courses offered in the Nuclear Engineering and Nuclear Chemistry. This track also requires specifically that the initial two Physics course are calculus based University Physics, PHYS 2325  and PHYS 2326 , which are pre-requisites for PHYS 3310 , Intro Nuclear PHYS. In addition to the General Education courses (30 sch), there are 27 sch of common science, 39 sch core Chemistry (with ≥23 UL included). The Nuclear Chemistry track then shows 21 sch (17 UL) for courses in Math, Nuclear Physics, Nuclear Chemistry, and Nuclear and Basic Engineering. This degree plan does not require a separate minor.

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