Environmental Analysis Coursework

Recommended Background for the Applied Chemical Science program:

  • A bachelor's degree (B.S. or B.A) in chemistry, biochemistry, or a closely related science or engineering program that includes coursework in general physics, chemistry, calculus, linear algebra, and differential equations
  • Strong quantitative abilities recommended
  • Statistics, introductory economics, and computer skills are preferred, but not required

Course Requirements

The Applied Chemical Science degree requires a minimum of 39 credit hours, not including the internship. The curriculum is built on a framework of relevant chemistry courses, business/management, analytics, and professional development: i.e. communication training, research, and practical experience in form of an internship.
