Advising Course Plan - Biochemistry Major 2-Year Plan

This advising plan shows an example of working through the requirements for the major in two years. It is appropriate for students who have already completed sixteen units of coursework with many of the General Education requirements satisfied by that earlier coursework. The student’s individual academic plan will be developed in consultation with an adviser and reviewed each semester prior to registering for the next semester. This plan assumes that the student has completed two units of general chemistry (with lab), two units of organic chemistry (with labs), two units of college or university physics (with labs), and two units of calculus w/analytical geometry prior to the first semester shown in the plan. Students who have completed less than 16 units, have a substantial number of General Education requirements yet to satisfy, or who have not completed the courses just listed may not be able to complete the degree in two years.

Courses for the major that should be completed prior to the first semester of this plan: CHEM 141P (General Chemistry I), CHEM 142P (General Chemistry II), CHEM 201 (Organic Chemistry I),CHEM 301 (Organic Chemistry II), MATH 141Q (Calculus I), MATH 142Q (Calculus II), PHYS 121P or PHYS 141P (College Physics I or University Physics I), PHYS 122P or PHYS 142P (College Physics II or University Physics II). Academic plans requiring the transfer of four courses associated with the major department are reviewed by the dean’s office.
