Chemistry Courses

A minimum of 4 courses (16 semester credits) in Chemistry is required.

General Chemistry I and II (8 semester credits): 2 courses each with laboratory. These should be freshman level courses required for chemistry or biology majors.

Organic Chemistry I and II (8 semester credits): 2 courses each with laboratory. These should be sophomore level courses required for chemistry or biology majors. One semester survey courses designed for nursing, medical technology students, etc. will not be accepted.

For those students who have completed these requirements more than 3 years ago it is recommended that a refresher course be taken.

*Note: Applicants are encouraged to take an additional (fifth) science course for 3-4 credits to supplement or strengthen their understanding of the fundamental principles underlying conservation science. 

Recommended courses include: 

  • Quantitative Analysis 
  • Physical chemistry 
  • Biochemistry 
  • Physics Material science 
  • Polymer science Mineralogy

A one-hour chemistry exam is part of the interview process to ensure that applicants are well versed in the fundamentals of bonding, chemical nomenclature, balancing equations, organic functional groups, basic organic reactions, stereochemistry, oxidation-reduction reactions, acid-base chemistry, and pH. True mastery of these key scientific principals will allow new Fellows to quickly engage with advanced and essential concepts in theoretical and applied conservation science.
