III. Elective Requirements: 12 hours
All students are required to take at least six hours of advanced electives outside their major field of study. These must be either upper-division classes or lower-division classes that have prerequisites. These may be satisfied with CHEM 2323 and 2325, counted under Major Preparatory Courses.
Guided Electives (12 hours)
Business (9 hours): To be selected from any upper-level JSOM courses. If qualified, the student may select from JSOM graduate courses.
Biology (3 hours): BIOL 4380 Cell and Molecular Biology Laboratory must be taken for the Biology elective.
- Degree is 141 hours if students are required to take NATS 1101.
- Curriculum Requirements can be fulfilled by other approved courses from accredited institutions of higher education. The courses listed in parentheses are recommended as the most efficient way to satisfy both Core Curriculum and Major requirements at UT Dallas.
- A required Major course that also fulfills a Core Curriculum requirement. Hours are counted in Core Curriculum.
