Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry Roadmap – Quantitative Reasoning Category I/II and ENG 114
120 Total Units Required
Minimum Number of Units in the Major: 56
This roadmap is a suggested plan of study and does not replace meeting with an advisor. Please note that students may need to adjust the actual sequence of courses based on course availability. Please consult an advisor in your major program for further guidance.

ENG 114 can only be taken if you complete Directed Self-Placement (DSP) and select ENG 114; if you choose ENG 104/ENG 105 through DSP you will satisfy A2 upon successful completion of ENG 105 in the second semester; multilingual students may be advised into alternative English courses.
To determine the best B4 course option, students should complete the online advising activity at mathadvising.sfsu.edu. Questions? Contact Gator Smart Start.
To avoid taking additional units, it is recommended that you meet the SF State Studies (AERM, GP, ES, SJ) requirements within your GE or major.
PHYS 111 and PHYS 112 are prerequisites for PHYS 121 and PHYS 122. PHYS 220 and PHYS 222 are prerequisites for PHYS 240 and PHYS 242.
CHEM 351 may be substituted for CHEM 300 if prerequisites for CHEM 351 are met.
For students who pursue a double major in the BA Chemistry and BS Biochemistry programs, CHEM 343 cannot be used to meet the elective requirement for the BA Chemistry. Students must take a different approved elective list to meet this requirement.
May be counted only once as an elective.
By petition only.
Given catalog rights, fall 2022 transfer students do not need to complete an Area F course.
