Chemical Biology Major Upper Division Requirements

Chemistry. 103, C110L*, 120A, 120B, 135**, and one of the following choices: 105, 115, 125, C170L, or C182.

A grade of C- or higher is required in Chemistry 120A and 120B if taken before 125 or C182.

Molecular and Cell Biology. 110.
Biology 1A plus 1AL and Chemistry 135 satisfy the prerequisites for Molecular and Cell Biology 110.

Seven Units of Upper Division Chemistry and Allied Subjects. In addition to the requirements listed above, the following must be completed to total at least seven units:

  • One additional lecture course (or laboratory/lecture course) in chemistry as approved by your staff adviser. Graduate-level chemistry courses (numbered 200+) may be used to satisfy the chemistry elective requirement, including courses that are 1 unit.
  • Additional course(s) in chemistry and/or related fields from the list of Allied Subject Courses

Advanced Placement, Advanced Level, and International Baccalaureate credit cannot be applied to this requirement.

No more than 4 units of research (such as 192, H194, and/or 196) may be used to satisfy requirements.

If a course is used to satisfy another requirement (such as the chemical biology major requirement of one of 105, 125, or C170L) the course cannot also be used to satisfy the Upper Division Chemistry and Allied Subjects requirement.

  *MCB 170L may be substituted for C110L.

**Chemical Biology majors may not replace Chem 135 with MCB 102.
