* UW 1020 (University Writing) is taken in the freshman year, followed by two courses (6 credits total) designated as Writing in the Discipline. The latter are departmental, GEC or elective courses with a writing component.
**GEC; General Education Curriculum requirements for Arts and Sciences students. See the Bulletin or academic advisors for acceptable courses. Currently 24 hours total. Chemistry majors normally fulfill the requirements in mathematics (quantitative reasoning) and natural and/or physical laboratory sciences (scientific reasoning) with the prerequisite courses for the major. The remaining requirements are for 6 credits of social sciences, 6 of humanities, and 3 of the arts.
***Required Forensic Sciences courses FORS 6211 & 6221 plus three courses selected from: FORS 6206, 6234, 6235, 6238, 6239, or 6240.
# Biochemistry 3165 may be taken in the Junior or Senior year.
NOTE: Candidates wishing to have an ACS certified degree must also take CHEM 4123 and CHEM 4195 (for 3 credits) in addition to the above courses. Chemistry 4195, Undergraduate Research, may be elected in the Junior or Senior Year. A course in a structured computer programming language is recommended.
