Upper Division Chemistry Majors

The Department understands the prospect of canceling Fall quarter upper division laboratory classes will cause students to alter their 2020-2021 study plan. The Department encourages you to enroll in upper division electives for Fall. The approved list can be found in the UCI Catalogue. Additionally, the Department will consider petitions for upper division science, medicine and engineering courses taught by other Departments that are not currently approved. If you would like to enroll in a course that is not listed in the catalogue email chemistry@uci.edu with the course information.
Examples of Fall 2020 Electives:

  • ESS 142: Atmospheric Chemistry
  • BioSci 97: Genetics - If you are interested in enrolling in BioSci 97 for Fall quarter please contact chemistry@uci.edu for clearance.
