B.S. in Chemistry-General Track

The General Track is recommended for students who wish to pursue careers in industrial, government, hospital or other technical laboratories; secondary education; sales in chemistry-related industries, or other careers for which a foundation in chemistry is beneficial. This track is also recommended for students who wish to pursue professional degrees in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy.

 

Curriculum Requirements:

In addition to the requirements for the chosen major and the General Education requirements of the University, students must complete an additional six (6) Complimentary Studies credits required by all students in the School of Computer, Mathematical and Natural Sciences. To qualify for graduation, chemistry majors must also pass the Senior Departmental Comprehensive Examination, must have taken all their junior- and senior-level requirements in the major at Morgan (unless granted prior written permission by the Dean to take courses elsewhere); and must have earned a cumulative GPA average of 2.0 or better and a major GPA average of 2.0 or better, with no outstanding grades below “C” in the major (which includes all courses required for the major and required supporting courses).
