The Bachelor of Science degrees in Chemistry are approved by the American Chemical Society. These degrees are especially recommended for students who plan to pursue graduate studies in chemical sciences, including analytical, biological, inorganic, organic, medicinal, pharmaceutical, polymer, and physical chemistry, as well as those who are interested in pursuing advanced degrees in medicine, pharmacy, and dentistry. Students completing this program will receive a certificate from the American Chemistry Society.
This program is designed for students who need more flexibility or those who desire to complete a Chemistry degree 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.
The Associate of Arts in Chemistry is in the process of being phased out by IU Southeast. Students admitted to IUS in Fall 2014 or before, with a declared major in Chemistry AA, may continue to complete the degree, provided they do not stop out for more than one semester. Any student admitted after Fall 2014 is not eligible to complete this degree.
Minors in Chemistry & Environmental Chemistry are offered through the Chemistry Departments at IU Southeast. Non-Chemistry Majors complete 20-21 credit hours to complete the Chemistry Minor. The Environmental Chemistry Minor is offered to majors and non-majors and requires 26-27 credit hours to complete.
