The Chemistry Department has been approved to offer a certified program of professional training. The comprehensive major meets all requirements for certification. In addition to the required degree program, approved departments may offer up to six degree options and we have approval for two options. The comprehensive major with the biochemistry emphasis is now approved by ACS as a Biochemistry option and the chemical education degree (if students take CHM 342 and CHM 343 or CHM 342 and CHM 344 but not if they take CHM 200) is now approved by ACS as a Chemical Education option. All students who have met the curricular guidelines of the approved programs will receive certification from the ACS. These options are recommended for students who plan graduate work in chemistry, teaching in a secondary school district, or employment in the chemical industry after graduation.
