The Department of Chemistry offers an intensive, accelerated,
combined degree program leading to both the Bachelor of Science and
the Master of Science degrees in five years of full time study.
Qualified undergraduates will have completed their sophomore year
with a 3.0 cumulative index and a 3.5 index in Chemistry courses
applicable to the major. They are enrolled into the program upon
application. Provisional acceptance into the program may be granted
to exceptional first and second year students.
Students enrolled in the B.S./M.S. program matriculate for a
total of 147/148 credits. A total of at least 126/127 credits must
be completed by the end of the fourth year, at which time the B.S.
degree is awarded. Completion of a thesis and the remaining hours
of course work in the fifth year fulfils the requirements for the
M.S. degree. All graduate students must successfully complete CHE
101 Instrumental Analysis, CHE 111 Advanced Inorganic Chemistry,
CHE 121 Advanced Organic Chemistry and CHE 141 Thermodynamics.
For more details and advisement about the B.S./M.S. program,
students are encouraged to contact the department chairman at the
earliest possible date.
