Notes

1The Humanities/Social Science (H/SS) requirement includes two approved reading and composition courses and four additional approved courses, with which a number of specific conditions must be satisfied. Reading and Composition "A" and "B" must be completed by no later than the end of the sophomore year. The remaining courses may be taken at any time during the program. See Humanities and social sciences for complete details and a list of approved courses.

2The 12 units of cluster courses are in addition to engineering and science courses used to fulfill other requirements of the program. See approved cluster course list for options.

3See Advanced Science Course Sequence. Choose one of the sequences of eight to 10 units.

4Chemistry 4A is intended for students majoring in Chemistry or a closely related field.

5Free electives can be any technical or non-technical course. A course of your interest offered by any department at Cal; there are no restrictions.

6Complete three courses from the following list: Biology 1A/1AL; Biology 1B; Chemistry 1B; 3A/3AL, 3B/3BL, 4B; Physics 7C; Earth and Planetary Science 50. Note: Approved scores on Biology AP, IB or A-Level Exams can satisfy 2 of the 3 basic science electives.

7Junior transfer admits are exempt from completing CE 11.
 

* A minimum of 120 units is required for graduation.
