REQUIRED 125 credits (36 of which must be numbered 300 or above and 60 of which must be from a 4-year institution) including:
I. Essential Studies Requirements (see University ES guidelines and course listings).
II. The Following Curriculum:
Major Requirements - 51 hours of Chemistry including the courses listed above.
FOOTNOTES:
1 = If a student is not ready for Math 165, the math sequence may be moved back one semester and Math 107 (also Math 103, if needed) should be taken in the first semester.

2 = Suggested electives are courses in Physics, Mathematics, Biochemistry, Biology, Languages, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Business Management, and Speech.

3 = Chem 44x (441, 442 and 443) courses are offered within a regular, two-year cycle. Students can take Chem 44x courses in any order and that order may differ from one shown above. To complete the degree in 4 years, students must start their Junior Year by taking the first available Chem 44x course of the cycle.

4 = Graduate level courses in chemistry may be taken as electives. ^^ Please Note: Every student must fulfill all University, Departmental, and Essential Studies requirements. Essential Studies requirements are found at http://und.edu/academics/essential-studies/requirements.cfm

REQUIRED 125 credits (36 of which must be numbered 300 or above and 60 of which must be from a 4-year institution) including:
I. General Education Requirements (see University GER listing).
II. The Following Curriculum:
Major Requirements - 37 hours of Chemistry including the courses listed above.
FOOTNOTES:
1 = Biology 150 and 151 can be taken in the sophomore year. They are prerequisite to other required biology courses.

2 = If a student is not ready for Math 146, Math 103 should be taken in the first semester. If a student would like the option to change into the B.S. in Chemistry or the B.S. with Major in Chemistry with emphasis for the Physical Science Option at a later date, be aware that Math 165, 166, and 265 are required. If a student who begins either the B.S. in Chemistry or the B.S. with Major in Chemistry with emphasis for the Physical Science Option wishes to change to the Biochemistry Option, Math 165 will substitute for Math 146.

3 = Electives must include 3 credit hours from Cell Biology (Biol 341), Genetics (Biol 315), or Microbiology (MBio 302/L). Other suggested electives are courses in Physics, Mathematics, Biochemistry, Biology, Languages, Computer Science, Chemical Engineering, Business Management, and Speech. ^^ Please Note: Every student must fulfill all University, Departmental, and Essential Studies requirements.
