Department of Chemistry
The Department of Chemistry offers two degree programs: the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and a dual degree consisting of the Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry and the Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree.
Completion of required major courses with no grade less than C is required for graduation as a chemistry major in the following degree programs. Also, any chemistry major satisfying any one of these degree programs may be recommended for departmental honors by completing the following requirements: eligibility for college honors, an average of B or above in all required major courses and electives, and participation with high-level performance in the departmental seminar as well as undergraduate research. Chemistry majors will satisfy the College requirement for speech by taking Professional Communication (ENG 351) from the English department.

Beginning with Fall 2018, students must also complete all major requirements listed above as well as those of the Morehouse College General Education program. For specific details, current students should consult the course catalog (under “Requirements for Graduation”) corresponding to their year of first matriculation.
Bachelor of Science Degree in Chemistry and
Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree
It is possible for students enrolled in dual-degree engineering to earn a joint B.S. in Chemistry and a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering degree. The departmental requirements for this dual-degree program are the courses CHE 111/111L, 112/112L, 211, 231-232, 321/321L, 322/322L, 326, 421, and one additional 400-level chemical engineering course offered at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Auburn University, Boston University, or Rochester Institute of Technology, plus the mathematics and physics courses required under the B.S. in chemistry program. It is understood that the student must meet all other requirements of the engineering college as well as the requirements of the dual-degree program.
