*Complete PHYS 151 and then PHYS 152 (or EE 210/210L) for 8 units OR CHEM 111A and 111B for 10 units

*CHEM 111A, 111B are 5 units each, thus increasing the unit count in the respective semesters

**A total of 12 units of Science is required. Only students who choose the CHEM sequence can take BIOL 153.

The 122 Unit total assumes the student maximizes the use of courses that satisfy both GE and major requirements
