Biochemistry (Starting with Math 19500) Degree Map (B.S.)

This Degree Map is a semester-by-semester sample course planning guide to help students complete the degree requirements within four years. The sample schedule serves only as a general guide and is not a substitute for academic advisement. Students should consult an advisor before registering for courses each semester. This map is in effect for the current academic year. Students should follow major requirements which were in effect the year they declared this major.   

To help students in making decisions about the career for which they are preparing, City College provides and encourages students to use the following resources:
