Green Chemistry (AS)
College: College of Natural & Health Sciences
The associate of science degree with a major in green chemistry is designed for students who wish to expand their knowledge of green chemistry beyond the certificate. It is ideal for business majors with an interest in chemistry or for pre-pharm students who might wish to earn a 2-year degree prior to attending pharmacy school. The program consists of 64-67 credits that includes university skills requirements, general education requirements, an ethnic diversity requirement and the program specific-requirements. To complete this degree program students must complete all required courses (minimum of 60 credits required) and earn a minimum cumulative degree grade point average of 2.00 with a minimum core chemistry course grade point average of 2.50.

This course fulfills the university writing skills requirements.
This course fulfills the university computational skills requirements.
These courses count toward general education requirements for UW-Parkside.
Check the course schedule and work with your advisor to find courses that fulfill your general education and/or ethnic diversity requirements.
There are 36 credits required for general education but, after taking required courses for the program, 20 credits will be needed depending on the program elective choices.
Required course SPCH 105 Public Speaking fulfills part of this requirement.
Required course CHEM 101 General Chemistry I fulfills part of this requirement.
A general education course may also be used to satisfy this requirement.
Students are required to have earn a minimum 2.50 grade point average in these core chemistry courses.
Students earning an associate of science degree with a program of study in green chemistry are not eligible to earn the green chemistry certificate.
A minimum of 60 credits are required to earn an associate degree. If a student tests out or is waived from any course such as MATH 111 College Algebra I or ENGL 101 Composition and Reading, students will need to complete elective credits as needed to reach the minimum of 60 credits.
How credits count:
Courses can count for multiple requirements such as a program requirement and a general education requirement but, the credits only count once. Therefore, depending on how many courses are chosen that fulfill both program and general education requirements, students may be required to take additional elective courses (from those not already taken in areas above) to reach the required minimum of 60 credits for an associate degree.
Depth, two-course sequence requirement:
The University of Wisconsin system has a requirement that each associate degree program must contain at least one two-course sequence in which the first course provides the foundation for the second course. The courses under required chemistry courses in this program fulfill this requirement.
