General Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area, students must complete a minimum of nine units and satisfy the specific category requirements for the Area.
  2. In each Segment II Area (PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum, must have a different departmental prefix.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement and one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. In each Segment II Area (i.e., PBS, BSS, and HCA), students must complete a minimum of nine units, but are not held to completion of the specific category requirements within each Segment II Area, except as required in the Physical and Biological Sciences Area.
  2. Within each Segment II Area, students must select courses from at least two different departments. That is, at least three units of the nine-unit minimum must have a different departmental prefix.
  3. Within Segment II, students must complete one course that is designated as fulfilling the Lifelong Development (LLD) requirement. While transfer students are not required to complete the American Ethnic and Racial Minorities (AERM) requirement, they are encouraged to select courses that address this important area.
  4. Students must complete a minimum of 27 units in Segment II. Students on the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area must make up any unit deficiencies in this Area by selecting additional course work in Segment II.

Physical and Biological Sciences Area--PBS (9 units)

Category A: Physical Sciences; Category B: Biological Sciences; Category C: Integrative Science

Specific Requirements

Freshman Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete one course (minimum: three units) in each category; i.e., A, B, and C.
  2. Courses with two different departmental prefixes must be selected.
  3. At least one course designated L/F (laboratory or fieldwork) must be selected.
  4. The Physical and Biological Science courses should be completed before the Integrative Science course.

Transfer Student Pattern

  1. Students must complete one course in Category A (three units minimum), one course in Category B (three units minimum), and a third course in either Category A, B, or C. A third course is not required of students whose ASE or DARS indicates rights to the six-unit system pattern for the Physical and Biological Sciences Area. However, students on the six-unit system pattern must make up any deficiencies in the 27-unit minimum for Segment II by selecting additional course work in Segment II.
  2. At least one course must fulfill the laboratory or fieldwork (L/F) requirement.
