- Students intending to pursue the B.S. in Chemistry at the Georgia State University-Atlanta campus must complete math courses through MATH 2202 or MATH 2212 and must take Principles of Physics I and II to complete Area F. Consult your academic advisor for additional guidance.
- All separate lecture and lab course combinations (e.g., BIOL 2107 and BIOL 2107L; CHEM 1211 and CHEM 1211L) are commonly offered as a combined course at Georgia State University-Atlanta (e.g., BIOL 2107K; CHEM 1211K. The combined (K) courses and separate lecture and lab (L) courses cover the same subject matter and are considered equivalent courses.
