  • The Department of Chemistry is accredited through the American Chemical Society (ACS) to offer the ACS degree certification in chemistry. The ACS certified degree provides more in-depth training for those students who wish to pursue graduate studies in chemistry or other advanced studies. There are three ACS accredited degree track options: ACS Major General Track, ACS Major Biochemistry Track, and ACS Major Organic Track. All ACS Track students must take the Introductory, Foundation, and Related courses listed under each ACS major as well as complete 400 hours of laboratory work beyond the Introductory course level. Undergraduate research hours can count towards the 400 hour requirement. All ACS students must maintain a 2.500 GPA in chemistry courses.
  • In addition to the ACS tracks, the Department offers a major in Chemistry, major in Biochemistry, and minor in Chemistry.

Chemistry Teacher Certification: Students who wish to teach Chemistry in secondary schools can receive secondary licensure in Chemistry with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Education (Licensure)   from Millsaps. Students interested in this option should see the Educator Preparation Program and contact the Millsaps Director of Programs in Education for further information.
