Footnotes:
a Meets WIC requirement.  It is strongly recommended that CH 422 be taken as a co-requisite with CH 462. 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 option adds only 2 credit hours to the total.
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. e  BI 211 is not a requirement for the Biochemistry option but it is an enforced pre-requisite for BI 314 and BI 311 (beginning S07). BI 211, 212, & 213 can be taken in any order.
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).
