Other Requirements:
  180 cr   last 45 cr (or 45 of last 60 cr) completed at OSU
  60 upper division credits   foreign language c
Footnotes:
a Meets WIC requirement.  It is strongly recommended that CH 422 be taken as a co-requisite with CH 462. c Requirement can be met by taking two years of one foreign language in high school, two terms of a college-level language (C- or higher) or an approved proficiency test.
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.  d BI 211 is not a requirement for the Forensic Science option but it is an enforced pre-requisite for BI 314 (beginning S07). BI 211, 212, & 213 can be taken in any order.
e see  Additional Information for more details   e  BB 494 was re-numbered as BB 493 and covers the same techniques and is taught fall term (5/28/15). If you took BB 494 before fall 2015 that will meet this requirement.
