Note: Department chairs frequently change at the beginning of the academic year.  Students should contact departments for updated information.

The Department of Chemistry is one of the oldest departments in the University and has a long record of preparing students for careers in science. Both Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees are available, depending upon a student’s career goals. Since a significant portion of America’s chemical industry is centered in the Philadelphia region, there is a wide range of career opportunities locally available. Although most of our students have gone on to medicine, dentistry, or the chemical industry, recent graduates have also gone on to careers in law, forensics, and even art restoration.

All prospective majors should schedule an appointment with one of the Departmental advisors (names of current advisors are available from the Chemistry office, BE 201) to plan a program of study. The recommended order of courses for the two majors is listed below; a different order is acceptable as long as the student adheres to prerequisite requirements.

Five-year Master's Programs

Five-year B.A. or B.S./M.A.

Chemistry majors at the beginning of their junior year may apply for admission to the fifth year M.A. Program. Upon admission to the program and satisfactory completion of the program requirements, the student is assured of having a master's degree at the end of the fifth year. Interested students should contact their advisor for details.

Five-Year Master’s/Secondary Education Certification Program

This is a combined program between the College of Science and Technology and the College of Education.  For more information, see the following website.

Requirements for the B.A. Major

Two semesters of calculus, and an option of Calculus III or Computer and Information Sciences C071; General Chemistry I, II with labs; Organic Chemistry I, II with labs; calculus-based physics I, II; the following advanced chemistry courses: 0129, 0213, 0231, 0232, and a choice of W237 or W314 (capstone writing course).  If Chemistry W237 is chosen, an additional course in chemistry numbered 0301 or above is required.  If Chemistry W314 is chosen, an additional course is required, chosen from a list of chemistry, biology, physics, geology, and mathematics courses.

Requirements for the B.S. Major

These include all required courses for the B.A. major; in addition, the B.S. major requires both Chemistry W237 and Chemistry W314, Chemistry 0301 and two advanced chemistry courses numbered 0305 or above, and two advanced science courses.

For the B.S. degree to be certified by the American Chemical Society calculus III is required.  The two advanced chemistry electives chosen must be Chemistry 0307 and 0371; the two advanced science electives are to be chosen from Chemistry 0293, 0308, 0313, 0317, 0327, 0328, 0337.

With the appropriate selection of electives, the B.S. degree is certified by the American Chemical Society11.
