Students are strongly advised to consult with faculty members of the department, not only for assistance in formulating their programs of study, but also for information relative to the many career opportunities afforded a chemistry major.
Benedictine College offers majors leading to the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees in chemistry.
For chemistry majors, a GPA of at least 2.00 must be maintained in all courses with a “CHEM” course number taken to date. A grade of at least “C–” must be achieved in all required courses for the major with a 2.0 required in the major to graduate. A grade of “C” or better is required for all prerequisites. Courses required for the major may be repeated, but students must satisfactorily pass all required courses in their first or second attempt.
