The chemistry curriculum at Hamline emphasizes understanding the fundamental theoretical concepts upon which all molecular sciences are based. The development of skills useful in problem solving, in construction of models, and in interpretation of data is stressed. The laboratory courses place strong emphasis on experimental design, instrumental methods, modern laboratory techniques, and data analysis.Nearly all courses in chemistry are sequential and have prerequisites. Careful planning is necessary if students are to take full advantage of other options available to them at a liberal arts college. A decision to major in chemistry should be made as early as possible, certainly no later than the sophomore year. A student wishing to major in chemistry should consult with one or more of the chemistry faculty.
Hamline's chemistry department offers two degrees:
Bachelor of Science (BS): for students desiring certification by the American Chemical Society, or planning on graduate studiesBachelor of Arts (BA): for students wishing to establish a double major, a chemistry major without certification by the American Chemical Society, or a secondary teaching license.
For students desiring certification by the American Chemical Society, or planning on graduate studies, the BS pathway is appropriate. The following courses constitute the minimum requirement.
