Degree Requirements

This program consists of lower division courses that many complete in community college.  If you have not completed those and transfer in you will need to get those out of the way right away.  For transfer students there is a suggested sequence to finish in Two Year Roadmap,  There is also a suggested sequence for a Four Year Roadmap and a Five Year Roadmap.    

Lower division courses should be completed before signing up for the pre-field experience.

Lower division courses should be completed prior to taking upper division courses to the extent possible.  See the university bulletin for prerequisites.

A grade of 'C' or better is required in all upper division courses for this major including in approved substitute courses.

  1. must take courses when they are offered (day, time, quarter) and
  2. must have the 200 level sciences completed prior to transferring here or to taking upper division, or
  3. take summer courses
