 (50:750:131-134 can be substituted by 50:750:203-206, but the 131-134 sequence is preferred)
               
(46 + 26 = 72 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 fairly math intensive, 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 Chair.
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.
