PHYS 2030 and PHSC 2060 are optional but recommended. The Physics for Scientists and Engineers sequence is recommended for continued graduate level studies.  PHYS 2210, 2215, 2220 and 2225 may be completed in place of the College Physics sequence.

Comments: (1) A grade of "C" (2.0) or better must be earned in each course required for the major (2) Knowledge of computer science is strongly recommended (3) All Chemistry Majors must successfully complete an exit exam before graduation (4) This is a composite degree, a minor is not required (5) This degree does not include the requisite numbers of upper division hours. Students completing this degree will fill the upper division requirement with elective credit.

*  Courses are taught every other year.  Please consult your adviser.
