Program Description

The Bachelor of Arts curriculum is designed to prepare undergraduate students for entrance into medical, dental or other professional schools. In order to develop their academic programs to meet specific needs and individual interests, students should consult their academic advisors.

The Bachelor of Arts degree candidate is required to complete the chemistry, mathematics, and physics course sequences in the degree program outline. The general elective requirement may be satisfied with any course sequence in the College of Science and Mathematics (COSM) or the College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS), including additional chemistry courses, life sciences courses or individual research projects (CHM 4990 ). Chemistry majors who are Bachelor of Arts degree candidates are required also to complete 18 credit hours outside the Colleges of Science and Mathematics and Engineering and Computer Science. This requirement may not be satisfied with WSU Core requirements.
