Catalog 2015-2016 > College of Natural and Health Sciences > Department of Chemistry, Biochemistry and Physics > Biochemistry > Four-Year Degree Plan for Major in Biochemistry, B.S. - ACS-Certified, ASBMB-Accredited
Note that this is a sample four-year plan. There are other course sequences that will allow a student to graduate within four years as long as prerequisite courses are taken in the proper sequence. This sample plan does not guarantee course availability, and adjustments to students’ plans may be necessary if they are unable to take specific courses during specific semesters. Students who are placed into lower level FYW, MAT or other prerequisite courses will need to adjust their four-year plans accordingly. Similarly, students who bring in Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or transfer credit for courses will need to adjust their four-year plans. A minimum of a 2.0 GPA both overall and in the major is required for graduation. In addition to major requirements, all components of the Baccalaureate Experience must be completed in order to graduate.

Note: The math requirement and natural science component of the Baccalaureate Experience are fulfilled by courses in the above sequence (i.e., BIO 198, CHE 152, MAT 260).
MAT 262, BIO 350 and BIO 360 are strongly recommended for the biochemistry major. BIO 199, as a part of the biology lower-core curriculum, is required as a prerequisite for all upper-level biology courses.
