Advising Notes for the Natural Sciences Major


  1. Substitutions may be made with the permission of the appropriate department chair. PHYS 4A -PHYS 4B -PHYS 4C  with labs PHYS 4AL , PHYS 4BL  is recommended instead of PHYS 2A -PHYS 2B  for those students well-prepared for physics.
  2. This figure takes into account that 12 units required for the major are expected to count toward General Education as follows: CHEM 1A  (3 units), BIOL 1A  (3 units), EES 168  (3 units), and 3 units if MATH 75  is selected. Consult your major adviser for details.
