(55 + 26 = 81 credits )

Notes:
1) You are only allowed one D grade in your Chem/Biochem lecture courses. The rest must be C or better.
2) This is a fairly math intensive major, and is 1 course away from a Math minor.
3) Research Credits can (with PRIOR approval) be used to substitute for chem courses/labs. Speak to the Undergraduate Program Director.
4) A typical sequence of classes is shown below – there is little flexibility in the 1st two years, but more in the last two years.
