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 Business must fulfill the requirements of the Chemistry Business 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.

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

To remain in good standing, students may only receive one D grade in the chemistry/biochemistry lecture courses. Students must not receive more than 10 C grades.
