The Chemistry Department’s Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Chemistry program has been approved by the Committee on Professional Training of the American Chemical Society (ACS). This means that the teaching staff, curriculum, equipment, library, and other facilities of the Department meet the standards established by the Society for the proper undergraduate training of chemists. Students who complete the work for the professional degree, Bachelor of Science in Chemistry, will receive a special certificate from the Society upon graduation and certification by the chairman of the department. Chemistry graduates are eligible to become full members of the ACS.

Students who wish to have the best preparation for graduate work or for an industrial position in chemistry should follow the program leading to the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. Students who desire a course of study which is less concentrated in chemistry, in order to prepare themselves for advanced work in other fields, should pursue the program leading to the B.S. degree with a major in chemistry. Those students who wish to prepare themselves for teaching in High School may pursue the program leading to the B.S. degree with a major in chemistry in the College of Arts and Sciences and take additional courses in the Department of Teaching and Learning to qualify for teaching certification. The specific course requirements for each of these major programs are listed below.

Graduate Study

The Department of Chemistry offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy with majors in inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and analytical chemistry. In order to pursue graduate work in chemistry, the student must have the baccalaureate degree with a major in chemistry.

Total Credits15

Chemistry majors seeking secondary certification must have an adviser both in the Chemistry Department and in the Department of Teaching and Learning. Formal admission to Teacher Education is normally sought while enrolled in T&L 250 Introduction to Education (see Department of Teaching and Learning listing).

Medical Laboratory Science

The Medical Laboratory Science (MLS) program at UND offers a “4+1” curriculum that allows a student to receive a certificate from the MLS program with one year of additional study past a B.S. degree in Chemistry. Students would then be eligible to take a national certification examination to become a certified Medical Laboratory Scientist. The MLS program requires a cumulative GPA of at least 2.8 for the B.S. program and a grade of C or better in certain specified courses. Please see the MLS program for more details.
