This program is designed for students who need more flexibility or those who desire to complete a chemistry BA with the minimum chemistry requirements but rich in other courses of interest. This program is recommended for students who plan to begin a career in a chemical laboratory immediately after graduation, as well as those who are considering a profession in such areas as politics or chemistry-related law and plan to attend a law school.
In addition to the "General Requirements for Undergraduate Degrees at IU Southeast" and "General Requirements for Bachelor of Arts Degrees" (see Academic Bulletin), the candidate must complete at least 33 credit hours in Chemistry, 10 credit hours in Physics, and 10 credit hours in Mathematics, with a grade of C or higher in each core course. Students with credits from other institutions pursuing a major in chemistry must complete at least three advanced chemistry courses (300-level or higher) and 1 credit hour of seminar (CHEM-C301 or C302) at IU Southeast. For more information contact an advisor at the School of Natural Sciences (812) 941-2284.
