   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Chemistry - College of Science



The Environmental Chemistry option is structured to provide a quality foundation for working in government, industrial or university labs studying the behavior of chemicals in the environment. It also is suited to graduate education in chemistry or environmental chemistry. Students can earn a BS degree in Chemistry in four years while targeting their career. This option includes 11 courses in biology, microbiology, toxicology, environmental chemistry and health, soil science, and hydrology.

The Environmental Chemistry option is designed for the Track-Two BS degree in Chemistry.



The track-two core requirements are slightly modified for the Environmental Chemistry option:
