Additional Information about the BS in Chemistry, Environmental Science Option

Also see policies

1.  CH 411 and CH 412 are a sequence so that CH 411 is the specified inorganic chemistry course.

2. CH 463 is the recommended WIC course but CH 462 is the recommended alternative course or an extra lab course.

3. The three elective courses for the environmental chemistry option are to be approved by the student's academic adviser by the end of the winter quarter of the junior year.

4.  BI 211 is not specifically required by chemistry or part of the total option credits, but now is required by Biology as an enforced prerequisite for BI 314 as of Spring 07. BI 211, 212, & 213 can be taken in any order.  It can be used as Env Sci elective credit.
