A candidate for the bachelor’s degree must complete a total of at least 120 credits of college work. A candidate for a degree in Chemistry must fulfill the requirements of the Chemistry major and meet the general curricular requirements of the Camden College of Arts and Sciences. A description of the general curricular requirements are available in the Course Catalog.

We encourage chemistry students take 50:198:111, Programming Fundamentals as one of their General Education requirements.

To declare Chemistry as your major, go to the registrar’s office and tell them you wish to major in chemistry (Subject Code: 160).
