B.S. in Chemistry-Professional Track

The ACS certified Professional Track is a rigorous program that provides you with the greatest amount of opportunity and flexibility in your future career choices. With this degree, students will be prepared for graduate studies in chemistry or any allied field including highly specialized degrees such as M.D./Ph.D. programs. Students can also choose from a wide variety of exciting jobs in industry and government research and development labs.

 

 

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).

 

The Professional Track requires Differential Equations (MATH340) as an elective along with one other Advanced Mathematics or Physics course.
