Professor Emerita: Hoffman

The department offers the undergraduate degrees of bachelor of science (BS) and bachelor of arts (BA) in chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical science. Students seeking BS or BA degrees in chemistry may major in chemistry or environmental chemistry. A degree in chemistry or biochemistry is suitable preparation for a variety of career choices, including immediate employment in the chemical, biochemical, environmental, and related industries, or graduate study in chemistry, biochemistry, chemical physics, biophysics, or medicine. The degree in chemical science is recommended as preparation for those who intend to pursue careers in medical technology, oceanography, or the technological aspects of law, public policy, and business.

For those students who intend to seek employment in the chemical industry, graduate study in chemistry or closely related areas, or admission to medical school, the baccalaureate degrees in chemistry and biochemistry are recommended. Students in this category should also take note of the possibility of earning certification by the American Chemical Society in completing their degree requirements. Details of this program are given below. Additional work in mathematics and physics is appropriate for students planning to conduct graduate work in physical chemistry and chemical physics. For those interested in graduate work in biochemistry or biophysics, the baccalaureate degree in biochemistry or the degree in chemistry with electives including BCH 4053, 4054, and selected biology courses is recommended. Students interested in careers in the environmental sciences, ecology and ecosystem management, and environmental toxicology are encouraged to obtain chemistry degrees with a major in environmental chemistry. In every case students should plan their programs in consultation with an academic adviser. Students are encouraged to consult chemistry advisers as early as possible.

The baccalaureate degree in chemical science is offered to meet the needs of those students whose career goals lie outside chemistry but require a strong foundation in science. This program is appropriate, for example, for a student interested in anthropology, the earth sciences, food sciences, or criminology, or for students planning a career in business or law with an emphasis in technology. Compared to the other degree programs in chemistry, this program has a smaller core of required courses to which students are expected to add elective work in other areas after consultation with their adviser. The chemical science degree is not appropriate for students interested in graduate study in chemistry or closely related disciplines such as biochemistry, environmental chemistry or marine chemistry, or for students seeking employment in the chemical industry immediately upon graduation.

Honors in the Major

The Department of Chemistry offers honors in the major to encourage students to undertake independent and original research. For requirements and other information, see the University Honors Program and Honor Societies section of this General Bulletin and the Chemistry Undergraduate Information Packet available from the Student Affairs Office, 208 Hoffman Teaching Laboratory.

Requirements

Please review all college-wide degree requirements summarized in the College of Arts and Sciences section of this General Bulletin.

The bachelor of arts (BA) degree can be obtained by completion of the bachelor of science (BS) degree requirements plus additional courses required by the University as set forth in the Undergraduate Degree Requirements section of this General Bulletin.

Students who expect to transfer to The Florida State University after one or more years should note the departmental mathematics and physics requirements. Chemistry courses at the 4000 level applied toward either the chemistry or biochemistry majors must be taken at The Florida State University unless specifically exempted by the chair on written request. To allow optimal flexibility in planning the upper-division programs, fulfillment of the mathematics requirement should be started in the freshman year.

Chemistry and biochemistry majors are required to take two semesters of calculus-based physics as preparation for Physical Chemistry I and II (CHM 4410 and CHM 4411). Currently at Florida State University these courses correspond to General Physics A and B with Laboratory (PHY 2048C and PHY 2049C). A transfer student or a student who has changed majors may have already taken one or two non-calculus based physics courses with laboratory. The current FSU courses would be College Physics A and B with Laboratory (PHY 2053C and CHM 2054C). A student who has passed (with a C- or better) the first non-calculus- based physics course with laboratory must complete the sequence with PHY 2049C. A student who has completed the entire non-calculus-based physics sequence must also take one of the calculus-based physics courses without the laboratory (PHY 2048 or PHY 2049). Completion of the full PHY 2048/2049 sequence is recommended as adequate preparation for the physical chemistry courses; however, if only one of these courses is to be taken, PHY 2048 is recommended. Chemical Science majors may meet the physics requirement with either the calculus-based or non-calculus-based physics sequence.

No required course in which a student has earned a grade below C- may be applied toward any of the degrees in chemistry. Students must also make a C- or better in the first semester of a year sequence course (or obtain the instructors permission) to continue the sequence.

The calculus courses required for the chemistry major offered within the baccalaureate degree in chemistry constitute a minor in mathematics, and no other minor is necessary. The calculus and calculus-based physics courses required for the environmental chemistry major offered within the baccalaureate degree in chemistry constitute an interdepartmental minor approved by the Department of Chemistry. The biology courses required for the baccalaureate degree in biochemistry constitute a minor in b iological sciences. The baccalaureate degree in chemical science must include a minor of twelve (12) semester hours in an approved minor field or fifteen (15) semester hours in an interdepartmental minor approved by the Department of Chemistry. No courses used for satisfying liberal studies requirements may also be counted toward the minor. Also, all majors in chemistry, biochemistry, or chemical science must fulfill all requirements for the College of Arts and Sciences, including foreign language requriements (see the separate listing for the College of Arts and Sciences in this General Bulletin).

Final graduation clearance for chemistry, environmental chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical science majors is made by the Department of Chemistry. Graduating students must schedule an exit interview with the Chair of the Undergraduate Curriculum and Advising Committee. The purpose of this interview is to ensure that the final degree requirements are being met that term, and to discuss the information requested in the exit survey. The Department of Chemistry will not approve graduation without an exit interview.

Baccalaureate Degree in Chemistry

Major in Chemistry

Complete the two-semester sequences in general chemistry (CHM 1045, 1045L, 1046, 1046L, or CHM 1050, 1050L, 1051, 1051L); organic chemistry (CHM 2210, 2211, 2211L); physical chemistry (CHM 4410, 4410L, 4411, 4411L); analytical chemistry (CHM 3120C, 4130C); and one semester of inorganic chemistry (CHM 4610) and the associated laboratory (CHM 4610L). Also required are mathematics through calculus III and two semesters of calculus-based physics. The physics and math requirements should be met before taking physical chemistry.

Major in Environmental Chemistry

Complete the two-semester sequences in general chemistry (CHM 1045, 1045L, 1046, 1046L, or CHM 1050, 1050L, 1051, 1051L); organic chemistry (CHM 2210, 2211, 2211L); physical chemistry (CHM 4410, 4410L, 4411, 4411L); analytical chemistry (CHM 3120C, 4130C or 4135C); and two semesters of advanced work in chemistry of the environment, including some aspects of aquatic, atmospheric and geological chemistry. Field work and modeling in environmental systems are encouraged as a part of this advanced work. A list of appropriate courses that satisfy the advanced chemistry of the environment requirement may be obtained from the environmental chemistry advisor. Also required are mathematics through calculus II, two semesters of calculus-based physics, two semesters of either biology or geology, and one semester of computer programming, numerical modeling, advanced statistics, or calculus III. Calculus III is strongly recommended as preparation for physical chemistry. The physics and math requirements should be met before taking physical chemistry.

American Chemical Society Certification

Students obtaining baccalaureate degrees in chemistry may obtain certification in chemistry or environmental chemistry from the American Chemical Society (ACS). Certification in chemistry requires completion of the core chemistry curriculum listed above, plus two additional upper-level chemistry courses. Independent research taken as CHM 4905r, Directed Individual Study, or 4906r, Honors Work, may be counted as upper-level chemistry courses, provided that a final report is written by the student. Certification in environmental chemistry requires completion of CHM 4610 and 4610L in addition to the core curriculum in environmental chemistry. Students planning to obtain ACS certified degrees should have their program of studies approved by an advisor in the department.

Baccalaureate Degree in Biochemistry

The requirements for the baccalaureate degree in biochemistry are the same as the baccalaureate degree in chemistry except that CHM 4410L, 4411L, 4610, and 4610L are not required, CHM 4135C can be substituted for CHM 4130C, and calculus III is not required (Calculus III is strongly recommended, however, as preparation for physical chemistry). Biochemistry (BCH 4053, 4054) is required along with one of the following: CHM 4410L-4411L, BCH 4053L, or CHM 4906r. Further, a minimum of thirteen (13) semester hours of biology is required including: BSC 2010, 2010L, 2011, 2011L; PCB 3063; and an additional biology course from a list obtained from the biochemistry adviser.

Students intending to specialize in oceanography are advised to substitute CHM 4130C for 4135C and to include OCE 4011 in the program of studies, along with selected electives in biological and earth sciences (e.g., GLY 4240; OCC 5050).

Business

The baccalaureate degree in chemical science with a minor in business can prepare students for management and marketing positions in the chemical and other technical industries and also provide a strong technical background for students interested in entering programs such as that for the master of business administration (MBA) degree. Suggested minor courses are at least one course each in accounting, management, marketing, and finance and one or more business electives. In addition, courses in economics and behavioral science (satisfying liberal studies social sciences requirement) and in computer programming, statistics, and written composition beyond basic English are recommended. Consult with the undergraduate adviser in the Department of Chemistry and with a representative of the College of Business in preparing a specific program.

Requirements for a Minor in Chemistry The requirements for a minor in chemistry include one year of general chemistry CHM 1045-1046 and 1045L-1046L, or CHM 1050-1051 and 1050L-1051L, and at least one of the following courses or course sequences: CHM 2210-2211, CHM 3120C, CHM 3400, CHM 4410-4411. A minimum of thirteen (13) semester hours is required, at least four (4) semester hours of which must be taken at The Florida State University. Grades below C- will not be accepted for minor credit.

Advanced Placement

Students with an Advanced Placement (AP) score of 3 will receive three (3) semester hours of nonspecific liberal studies credit; an AP score of 4 earns the student credit for CHM 1045 and 1045L; an AP score of 5 earns the student credit for CHM 1045, 1045L, and 1046. Students with an AP score of 3 are eligible to take a departmental placement exam for CHM 1045 and be interviewed for placement in CHM 1020L or 1045L.
