Plus four credits from:
*required for a B.S. in Chemistry with a biochemistry concentration, plus a research project in biochemistry
All chemistry majors are advised to take General Chemistry (CHEM 111-112 or CHEM 115) and MATH 113-114 (Calculus) during the freshman year, then CHEM 201-202 and PHYS 111-112 (Introductory Physics) during the sophomore year. (Note that PHYS 109-110 is not acceptable for the chemistry major). Other sequences of math and physics are much less desirable. If necessary, MATH 113 can be started in the second semester of freshman year; then MATH 114 can be taken concurrently with PHYS 111 during first semester sophomore year.

Note: Math and physics requirements are specified above. MATH 200 and 240 are highly recommended.
A minor in chemistry shall consist of 24 credits in chemistry courses. A minimum of 8 credits in chemistry must be successfully completed at St. Thomas to earn a minor in the field.
Plus sufficient credits from the following to yield a total of 24:
Note: Some of these courses have prerequisites beyond the core, or require permission of the instructor.
