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.
Requirement 1 Complete 17 Courses
Note: With department approval Chem 105 may substitute for Chem 111; and Chem 106 for Chem 112.
Requirement 2 Complete 8 Courses
Requirement 3 Complete 1 Course
Requirement 4 Complete 3.0 hours from the following Courses
After consulting with an advisor, complete 3 hours from the following. NOTE: With prior approval, many 300-level and above courses in biology, integrative biology, microbiology and molecular biology, and physiology and developmental biology will fill this requirement. Chem 500 does not count toward fulfilling this requirement.
Recommended Courses: Chem 195; Math 302 or Math 313.
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.
