Footnotes:
a Meets WIC requirement.  It is strongly recommended that CH 422 be taken as a co-requisite with CH 462. e Any course offered by the College of Liberal Arts with the restriction that music or art courses must be in theory or history
b  Courses from approved list. For perspectives, no more than two courses from one department.  For synthesis, courses must be from different departments. Transfers from Oregon Community Colleges with an AAOT degree have fulfilled the lower division Bacc Core requirements. f The BA requires proficiency in language equivalent to that attained at the end of a second-year sequence. Meets foreign language requirement if student (after F97) does not enter with two years of the same high school language.
c Two years of one of foreign language in high school. Requirement can also be met by taking two terms of a college-level language (C- or higher) or an approved proficiency test (students entering in F97 or later). g Approved by the student's academic adviser by the end of the winter quarter of the junior year
The combination of CH 421, CH 422, and CH 461 is recommended for the strongest background in analytical chemistry, with this option only one inorganic chemistry course is required (CH 411 ) so that this options adds only 2 credit hours to the total.
