1 Physical Science Electives–two courses (8 hours) from chemistry, physics, geology, ESS 210 , GEOG 131 *-GEOG 132 *. CHEM 130 * is a prerequisite/corequisite to BIOL 140 *. Therefore, students who choose BIOL 130 *-BIOL 140 * should take CHEM 120 *-CHEM 130 * for their physical science electives. BIOL 111 *-BIOL 112 * has no chemistry requirement.
2 AREC 201 * (4) or ECON 201 * (4) satisfies the University General Education–Social Science requirement and the major requirement for economics. If the student transfers ECON LD for 3 credits, it will satisfy the major requirement but will not satisfy the General Education–Social Sciences requirement. In these cases, the student should take two courses from the Social Sciences list .
3 Choose from the University General Education list .
4 Any course not already required for the major.
