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

New Plan of study with new Colonnade/General Education Courses (starting Fall 2014)



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.

If you are interested in other plans of study that include a chemistry or biochemistry major, e-mail Dr. Webb(note that these plans take some time to generate)
