*Students taking CHEM 101/L at CSUN must satisfy the prerequisite by scoring 40 on the Chemistry Placement Test (contact the CSUN Testing Center for details and test dates.) The prerequisite may also be satisfied by completing CHEM 100 at CSUN with minimum grade of “C”. If students take CHEM 100 at CSUN the number of elective units needed is reduced by 3 units.

** Total of 9 units Upper Division General Education must include 3 units from GE B5 Scientific Inquiry and Quantitative Reasoning (PHYS 301 satisfies GE B5), and 6 units from GE Upper Division Section C1 Arts, or GE Upper Division Section C2 Humanities, or GE Upper Division Section D Social Sciences, or GE Upper Division Section F Comparative Cultural Studies. (No more than 3 units from GE Upper Division C and no more than 3 units from GE Upper Division D.) If needed, select UDGE courses that also satisfy: IC: Information Competence, and/or: GE Upper Division Section D2 American History Institutions and Ideals, OR GE Upper Division Section D3 and D4 Constitution of the United States and State and Local Government.

***Upper division courses in the major plus upper division GE courses total 34 units. A minimum of 6 units of additional electives must be upper division (300- and 400-level) to satisfy the 40 unit upper division minimum requirement for the degree.
