  • Student has earned appropriate placement score for MTH 151 or STA 261.
  • Student has earned credit for one year of College Chemistry.

Note

  • This plan makes several assumptions and should NOT be construed as a substitute for academic advising.
  • All requirements are subject to change.
  • Students must complete all requirements in order to graduate.
  • The Zoology major is housed within the Biology Department.
  • CHM 2 Thematic Sequence can be completed by adding CHM 332 to courses required for the major; this course can also apply to the major’s related hours requirement.
  • Please be aware that some BIO courses are only offered in the fall semester and others in the spring; attention must be paid to the prerequisite structure of these courses.
