  • Application Required: Yes
  • Degree Requirement: Completed Associate of Science degree (AS) in Theatre: Acting at QCC
  • Minimum CUM GPA: 2.5
  • Audition/Portfolio: Not applicable

Notes:

  • Upon transfer, students must declare a major in Chemistry.  They must then choose one of three concentrations: Standard Chemistry, Environmental Chemistry or Chemistry for Secondary Education.
  • To graduate from CCNY with a B.S. in Chemstry or Biochemistry, students must earn a C or higher in all Chemistry and Biochemistry courses.  Accordingly, QCC transfer students will not receive credit toward CCNY Chemistry major requirements for QCC courses in which they earned less than a C grade.
  • Students who have not completed all of the major elective courses outlined in the table below while at QCC must complete the remaining courses at CCNY.
  • Students must earn at least 30 of their major coursework credits in residence at CCNY. Additionally, students must earn at least 60% of their major coursework credits at CCNY.  Accordingly, transfer students will not be permitted to count more than 16 credits of QCD Biology and Chemistry courses toward the CCNY Biochemistry major requirements.

Additional Notes:

*Students are required to take particular courses in some areas of the Common Core that fulfill both general education and major requirements at QCC. If students do not take the required courses in the Common Core, they will have to take additional credits to complete their degree requirements.

**Students who place into MA-440 or MA-441 will use that course to satisfy Required Core 1B. A higher math placement will allow students to take additional Major Requirement courses.

***Students must complete two course sequences in at least two different subject areas (Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, and Physics).  For students following this agreement, one two course sequences in Chemistry (CH-251 and CH-252) and one in Mathematics (MA-441 and MA-442) are recommended.

****The previous CCNY Math courses were MATH 202 and MATH 203, the Chemistry department accepts these as equivalents to MATH 212 and MATH 213. Therefore, MATH 202/203 can also serve as equivalents for MA-442 Analytic Geometry and Calculus II and III respectively.

*****For the Chemistry or Biochemistry major requirements, students can take one of two Mathematics sequences at CCNY: MATH 20100, MATH 21200, CHEM 25000 or MATH 20100, MATH 21200, MATH 21300.  The same applies here.

 ******If taken in the Common Core, an additional major elective is recommended.

ACS Certification.  It is possible for students at City College to receive an American Chemical Society (ACS) Approved degree.  An ACS Approved degree is an additional level of qualification that is looked upon favorably by employers.  For ACS certification, the student must complete the following courses or their equivalents:  General Chemistry CHEM 10301 and 10401 Foundation Courses CHEM 24300, 26100, 33000, 32002, 42500 Advanced Courses Standard Chemistry: CHEM 26300, 33200 Biochemistry: CHEM 43500, 48005.  In addition, a total number of laboratory hours must be met (400 hours not including General chemistry). This is met by the lab courses combined with independent research, working with a faculty member in their research group. In Standard Chemistry: CHEM 24300 (60 hours), 27200 (75 hours), 37400 (75 hours), 33100 (60 hours), 43400 (75 hours), Independent Study/Honors Research (minimum 55 hours which is approximately 1 semester for 3 credits) Biochemistry: CHEM 24300 (60 hours) 27200 (75 hours), 37400 (75 hours), 32004 (60 hours), 43500 (60 hours), Independent Study/Hours Research (minimum 70 hours which is approximately 2 semesters for 3 credits each).
