Natural and Computational Sciences

Area D: Natural and Computational Sciences

1. You must choose one group of science courses. Certain majors require specific science courses. All pre-med majors should start with CHEM 1211K. To register for CHEM 1211K, please visit the Chemistry website for details about taking the Chemistry placement test.
All courses above ending in K are commonly offered as separate lecture and lab (L) courses by GSU’s Perimeter College. The combined (K) courses and separate lecture and lab (L) courses cover the same subject matter and are considered equivalent courses.
