Footnotes:

  1. G. E. denotes General Education course; letter + number denotes area and section. Area designations are:
    A. Communication and Critical Thinking; B. Math and Natural Sciences; C. Humanities; D. Social Sciences; E. Lifelong Understanding and Self-Development. See Catalog for details.
  2. Satisfies G. E. Area B requirement (see Area designations in 1 above). Total credit from Area B1, B2, B3, B4 must be ≥ 16 units. Note: BIO 121 (3 units) plus BIO 121L (2) can be used in place of BIO 110 + 111L .
  3. G.E. Area B5 course must be an approved upper-division course in math or science.
  4. Satisfies G. E. Area A1.
  5. Satisfies G. E. Area E if SCI 101 and SCI 102 are both taken.

Subject to prerequisites, G.E. courses may be taken in interchanged order.
