Footnotes:
a  Meets WIC requirement.  Highly recommended that CH 422 be taken as a co-requisite with CH 462. e  Prior to W 2010: BA 230 (4) or BA 347 (4); BA 340 (4); BA 352 (4) were required for this option and 12 cr of BA courses for electives.
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 ECON 201 is a prerequisite for many business courses and should be taken as the Bacc Core course in the Perspectives category of social processes and institutions.
c Requirement can be met by taking two terms of a college-level language (C- or higher), two years of one foreign language in high school,  or an approved proficiency test. g Prior to W 2010,: 12 credits of any 400-level business level courses or BA 350, BA 390 or BA 357.   Prerequisites must be completed prior to taking advanced courses. See additional information web page.
d 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.
