The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry offers two degree programs leading to either Bachelor of Science degree or a Bachelor of Arts degree.

The Bachelor of Science degree  offers students one of three concentrations: a chemistry concentration, a biophysical concentration and a biochemistry concentration.

The Bachelor of Arts degree offers students the choice of two concentrations: a chemistry concentration and a biochemistry concentration.

Chemistry, Bachelor of Science Degree

Requirements for a B.S. degree with a Major in Chemistry: In addition to the University Core requirements and the Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences Graduation Requirements, the following course requirements must be met. Bolded courses from the list below may be applied to portions of the University Core requirements.

Eight-Semester Degree Program

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for university requirements of the program. Core requirement hours may vary by individual, based on placement and previous credit granted. Once all core requirements are met, students may substitute a three-hour (or more) general elective in place of a core area. Students must complete at least 124 hours and this must be considered when scheduling upper-level hours in the senior year.

This program meets the minimum requirements for certification by the American Chemical Society if CHEM 3813 (or CHEM 4813H/CHEM 4843H or CHEM 5813/CHEM 5843) is included.

Requirements for Departmental Honors in Chemistry: Students with good academic backgrounds and strong interests in research are encouraged to participate in the department of chemistry and biochemistry honors program. Entrance into the program is normally during the sophomore year or the first semester of the junior year, and a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 is required. Entrance is initiated by consulting the faculty academic adviser, who will help arrange conferences with potential faculty research project advisers. When there is agreement between the student and the adviser on a research project or area, an Honors Advisory Committee is set up to supervise the honors candidate’s program. The heart of the program is the research project, but students are encouraged to broaden their experience beyond required courses within chemistry, the natural sciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. Participation in Honors Colloquia, honors sections of regular courses, and chemistry departmental and divisional seminars is especially recommended. All honors candidates enroll in the spring semester Honors Seminar (CHEM 4011H), and senior honors students must make at least one seminar presentation. All honors candidates will be required to complete and defend an honors thesis and take 12 hours (which may include 6 hours of thesis) in Honors Studies. The thesis is required in the spring semester of the senior year, followed by an oral presentation. On the basis of these written and oral reports and their evaluation of all aspects of the student’s honor program, the candidate’s Honors Advisory Committee will recommend whether or not the distinction “Chemistry or Biochemistry Scholar Cum Laude” should be awarded. Higher degree distinctions are recommended only in truly exceptional cases and are based upon the whole of the candidate’s program of honors studies.

Chemistry (B.A. or B.S.) Physical/Earth Science Teacher Licensure Requirements: Students wanting to pursue licensure through the MAT program should please refer to the Secondary Education Requirements for Fulbright College Students. Students wishing to pursue licensure through the UAteach undergraduate curriculum should consult with a UAteach adviser, uteach@uark.edu.

Students wanting to teach science in middle school should consult with a middle level adviser in the College of Education and Health Professions.
