Program Planning


Bachelor of Science - Chemistry Sample Sequencing Plan (2010 / 2011)

Shown below is a sample sequence of courses for your degree. If you follow this plan, you should be able to graduate in four years, provided you complete five courses per semester. This is just one example of how you could complete your major and degree requirements; you may find that a different sequence works as well as this one.

See the UofL Calendar and/or the Program Planning Guide for details regarding program requirements.

1 Chemistry Majors should normally take Biochemistry 2000 in Year Three (in any semester that it is offered). This will allow the substitution of higher-level biochemistry courses for up to two offerings of Chemistry 4000. Remember: Biochemistry 2000 is a prerequisite for Biochemistry 3100 and Biochemistry 3300, so plan sequencing accordingly.
Note: Students must complete all 1000/2000-level Chemistry courses in the required core as well as all the required cognates in Years 1 and 2. Given the prerequisites, students must follow the above sequencing for Years 1 and 2.
Students are strongly advised to consult with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry regarding the sequencing of the above courses for Years 3 and 4. Many 3000-level courses are offered in alternate years.
