a MTH 112 can be taken to prepare for MTH 251 if the score on 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 a 1 credit course and graded P/N.
c BB 450 may be substituted for BB 490 & 491. BB 490 & 491 provides 2 credits of Career Supportive Electives (CSE).
d Advanced Chemistry requires at least 12 CSE credits to complete this track.


Career Supportive Elective courses (CSE) are decided in your Junior year. You will consult with your chemistry adviser for the courses that best meet your track choice. You are required to take at least 12 CSE credits for graduation. They can be taken any term as scheduled.

While the order of the courses above is suggested, many of the prerequisites, chemistry and biochemistry courses are only taught one term per year. Because of this, it is critical that you consider this when planning out your academic schedule.

Baccalaureate Core courses are not shown on the chart above.
