2016-17 Academic Catalog

Chemistry is concerned with the properties and compositions of substances and the transformations which they undergo. Because chemistry is a basic science to many careers, two undergraduate degree programs and three concentrations are offered to provide the needed flexibility for majors. These degrees are the B.S. and the B.A. degrees. A minimum of 124 hours is required for the B.S. degree and the B.A. degree. The department also offers the M.S. and the Ph.D. graduate degrees. Students in other majors may earn a minor in Chemistry by achieving at least a 2.00 average in a total of 22 hours of chemistry with 14 of the hours in upper-division courses and a minimum of 11 of the total hours completed at MSU.

The American Chemical Society (ACS) has continually approved the department and its curriculum since 1941, and awards a certificate to students who complete the ACS program with their BS degree. The ACS program is primarily intended as preparatory for graduate study in chemistry leading to a career in basic research. Graduates could also go directly into research and development positions in industry. Students seeking information on the ACS certification should contact a major advisor.

The B.A. degree program has a stronger liberal arts emphasis and could serve as a preparation for a secondary teaching career, chemical sales, or further study in a professional school.

Pre-Pharmacy Requirements

The pre-pharmacy program is intended for students who wish to attend the School of Pharmacy at the University of Mississippi. Students may choose to obtain the B.S. with non-ACS certification degree or complete only the pre-pharmacy requirements, for which a degree is not awarded from MSU. The courses listed below will satisfy the requirements for the School of Pharmacy at the University of Mississippi. Most pharmacy schools have similar requirements. However, students who wish to attend other pharmacy schools should check the specific requirements for that school.
