Requirements for the ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMISTRY B.S. Degree
Students have an option of earning a B.S. in the Environmental Chemistry that is ACS-Certified or not. The ACS certified version is recommended for those who intend to apply to graduate school in Chemistry. The Non-Certified program is designed to prepare students to enter the industrial, government, or legal workforce, or to continue studies in some of the environmental sciences.
