a MTH 112 can be taken for preparation for MTH 251 if score on the ALEKS Math Placement test is 59% or less; MTH 112 is not a required course for the chemistry degree.

b Chemistry majors are strongly encouraged to take the chemistry major's orientation course, "Careers in Chemistry", fall term.  This is 1 cr (P/N).  

c CH 324 is the recommended analytical chemistry course for many students and is taught all three terms. The combination of CH 421, CH 422, and CH 461 may be substituted for CH 324 for students who desire the strongest background in analytical chemistry. With these three analytical chemistry courses, only one inorganic chemistry course is required (CH 411) so that the required credit hours only increases by 2 compared to program shown in the table. Note that CH 421 and CH 461 are taught only Fall term and CH 422 is given only winter term.

The order of courses is suggested. For many courses (CH, MTH, PH), the order is very fairly critical because of prerequisites and the fact that most CH courses are taught only one term per year.  

Bacc core courses, and specific required language courses (through second year), c
areer supportive elective courses (9 cr), or additional liberal arts elective courses (9 cr) are  not shown.  Discuss these with your chemistry advisor in advance of registration.
