Chemistry

Standard program for the A.B. degree

CHEM 0330, 0350, 0360, 0500, 1140, 1150, 1160, plus two advanced science/math electives,* at least 1 must be a chemistry course.

Note that the physical chemistry courses (CHEM 1140, 1150, 1160) have mathematics and physics prerequisites.

* BIOL 0280 is credited as an elective for the chemistry concentration.

Standard program for the Sc.B. degree

The Chemistry Department offers three tracks for the Sc.B. Chemistry Concentration a Chemistry track, a Chemical Biology track and a Materials Chemistry track. These tracks are not separate concentrations your degree will still be an Sc.B. in Chemistry. The Chemical Biology track is designed for students who have a strong interest in the interface of chemistry with biology. The Materials Chemistry track is designed for students who have a strong interest in the interface of chemistry with nanoscience and materials science.

Concentrating in Chemistry – Three tracks
The required/recommended courses for the three tracks are given below.

In each of these cases, 0970/0980 should be carried out with a faculty member with an appointment in the Chemistry Department. Research with faculty advisors outside Chemistry may be allowed in some special cases. In this event, the student should a) prepare a proposal for the research to be carried out and b) identify a faculty member in the Chemistry Department who will serve as a second advisor and the second reader for the thesis. A thesis is required to be eligible for graduation with Honors.
