Program Requirements

No more than 3 hours of D credit is allowed in major courses.
The Chemistry and Biochemistry Department requires the final 10 hours of required chemistry credit to be taken in residence at BYU for this degree program. These hours may also go toward BYU's 30-hour residency requirement for graduation.
Note: With departmental approval, Chem 105 may substitute for Chem 111, and Chem 106 for Chem 112.
Requirement 4 Complete 3.0 hours from the following Options
After consulting with an advisor, complete 3 hours from the following:
Note 1: Chem 500 does not count toward filling this requirement.
Note 2: Elective courses must be different from required courses.
Note 3: With prior approval, certain 300-level and above courses in biology, engineering, physics, and statistics may be taken to satisfy this requirement.
Recommended Courses: Chem 195; Math 302, 303; PDBio 120; Phscs 140, 145.
Note: Supporting courses suggested by most medical and dental schools are found by visiting the Preprofessional Advisement Office. The more rigorous chemistry, mathematics, and physics courses required for the chemistry majors will satisfy the minimum requirements listed there. Elective courses in biochemistry and in biological science are especially pertinent to these preprofessional programs.
