The student has to enroll in CHEM 2250 in the fall term of the junior year and CHEM 4360 in the Spring term since CHEM 2250 is a prerequisite for CHEM 4360.

It is recommended that the additional chemistry course needed to complete the major and the two additional biology courses needed to complete the biology minor (if the student wishes to do this) be taken in the senior year.
