A grade of "C" or above in a prerequisite course is required for enrollment in an advanced course in chemistry. The chemistry and biochemistry majors are encouraged to take additional courses (e.g. Advanced Organic Chemistry, Inorganic Chemistry, the second semester of Physical Chemistry for biochemistry majors) beyond the required courses specified above.
All chemistry and biochemistry majors must pass a general written comprehensive examination. The examination consists of questions in general chemistry, analytical chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry and biochemistry. All questions on the exam are based upon prior coursework. A study guide and sample questions are available from the department. Students can earn a pass with distinction, pass, low pass or failure. Students normally take the comprehensive exam at the beginning of the spring semester in their senior year.

It is this emphasis on American political development combined with the quality of faculty and the rigor of the University of Dallas' politics doctoral program that led the U.S. Department of Education to award UD a $250,405 grant for stipend support for politics doctoral students through its Graduate Assistance in Areas of National Need program.+ Read More
