Chemistry - Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts curriculum is designed to provide flexibility with less depth in chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The program may be used by students planning extensive study in other areas and requires emphasis in a second field of study. Emphasis area credits cannot be used for Bachelor of Arts degree.
