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.

Chemistry is a science that deals with the composition, structure, reactivity and properties of substances and of the transformations they undergo. Chemists perform experiments, conduct research, investigate and analyze techniques for basic scientific purposes, and develop new and improved products. Many chemists specialize in the product or process of a particular industry, such as agriculture, good, petroleum, plastics and rubber.
