Not required for the criminalistics emphasis-DNA track major.
Students interested in securing secondary-education certification should add GEOGRPHY 3330 to the 38-credit standard chemistry requirements.
Students who expect to enter a graduate program in chemistry are advised to choose one of the ACS-approved majors.
Chemistry Major, Criminalistics Emphasis, DNA Track
The criminalistics DNA emphases track will provide a chemistry major with sufficient background and training to qualify for criminalistic laboratory work. Criminalistics students electing the DNA track complete the standard chemistry major, except CHEMSTRY 2730, plus:
|CHEMSTRY 4830||Biochemistry Topics||3|
|CHEMSTRY 4610||General Biochemistry Lab||1|
|BIOLOGY 2040||Cell Biology||4|
|BIOLOGY 4040||Molecular Biology||5|
