400. Requirements for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in the College of Chemistry

(Am. 3.83, 4.89, 4.27.06, 11.2.11)
  1. Requirements for the Bachelor of Science Degree
    1. B.S. in Chemistry: 120 units; B.S. in Chemical Biology: 120 units; B.S. in Chemical Engineering: 120 units. None of the units may be for any course (e.g., trigonometry, high school chemistry, high school physics) which is equivalent to a matriculation subject prerequisite to a required course in the College.
    2. General University requirements as to:

Entry Level Writing Requirement (SR 636);

American History and Institutions (SR 638);

Grade-point average (SR 634);

    1. Reasonable proficiency in the use of English; the criterion for satisfaction of this requirement is set by the Faculty of the College.
    2. Courses in the humanities and social sciences; the Faculty of the College establishes the number of units required and the list of courses acceptable in satisfaction of this requirements.
    3. A program of specified courses in mathematics physics, and the several fields of chemistry, as approved by the Faculty of the College.
    4. To be advanced to, and to continue in, the upper division a student must have completed a lower division program approved by the Faculty of the College; and have achieved and maintained at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all courses in the College of Chemistry in which the student has enrolled. (En.4.89)
    5. To be eligible for the B.S. Degree a student must have achieved at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all courses of upper division level offered in satisfaction of specific requirements (other than breadth paragraph A.4) for the degree. (En.4.89)
  1. B.S. Major in Chemistry and B.S. Major in Chemical Biology
    • The B.S. Chemistry major and the B.S. Chemical Biology major consist of a group of courses in chemistry and related fields, as approved by a study-list officer of the College and totaling at least 16 units in addition to the courses specified in paragraph A.5.
    • A reading knowledge of a foreign language approved by the Faculty of the College is required.
  1. B.S. Major in Chemical Engineering
    1. The Chemical Engineering major consists of courses in chemical engineering, mathematics, and other scientific and professional subjects characteristic of this field.
    2. To be advanced to the upper division in Chemical Engineering, a student must meet the criteria in section A.6 and have passed an introductory course in chemical engineering with a satisfactory grade.
  2. Publication of Requirements

Current requirements for the degree, as approved by the Faculty of the College, shall be published in the General Catalog.
