Plans of Study

These plans are designed to show how a chemistry or biochemistry major (often with a minor or second major) can be accomplished in 8 semesters while remaining at or near the 120-hour minimum. While every attempt is made to ensure the accuracy and feasibility of these plans, check with your adviser before registering for classes.

Currently available plans (uses Colonnade/General Education Courses, other plans available upon request through department office)

Note: The chemistry major/biophysics minor with pre-pharmacy requirements puts almost all non-elective courses in the first 3 years (this schedule does not have to be followed for students planning on remaining at WKU for 4 years). Many pre-pharmacy students leave after 3 years and can transfer back credits to complete the degree within the first 2 years of pharmacy school. Courses for which credit can be transferred back are indicated in italics. See a pre-pharmacy adviser for more details.
