The General Education Requirement
Biochemistry majors are required to complete a minimum of 6 hours each in the Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Humanities and the Arts, and Cultural Studies, both nonwestern/U.S. minority culture(s) and western/comparative culture(s). The total GenEd requirement is 18 hours.
It is the student's responsibility to check these lists for currently available courses. Note: The other General Education requirements (Column I and Column II) for students in the LAS Science and Letters Majors do not apply to students majoring in the Biochemistry Curriculum. Biochemistry majors must satisfy the campus-wide General Education requirements.
Biochemistry majors, use the General Education Requirements Course Lists to satisfy the following requirements.
|Requirement||Select from these LAS Categories|
|Humanities and the Arts||2 courses|
|6 hours (minimum)||Literature and the Arts or
Historical and Philosophical Perspectives
|Social and Behavioral Sciences||2 courses|
|6 hours (minimum)||Social Sciences or
|Cultural Studies||1 course from each group below|
|6 hours (minimum)||Nonwestern Culture(s) or
U.S. Minority Culture(s)
Advising Tip: You can satisfy two General Education requirements with one course if you choose carefully. Some courses approved for Cultural Studies or Composition II also appear on the Humanities/Arts and Social/Behavioral Sciences lists (see above). These courses, if taken, will satisfy both requirements.
