ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

This degree is designed for students who wish a good knowledge of chemistry as a background for some other field. Examples are pre-medical, pre-dental, pre-veterinarian, oceanography, environmental science and criminology. Other possibilities include a combination of chemistry with areas such as law and business. This degree should not be used by someone planning to work as a chemist directly or planning to do graduate work in Chemistry.
