Total: 126.5 Credits

1For ACS certification, Chemistry majors must complete MATH 222 , MATH 341 , CHEM 350  or CHEM 450  and one upper-division chemistry elective.

2 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
