This department offers 4 current majors: Chemistry, Biochemistry, General Chemistry, and Chemistry-Materials Science. These majors are complex subjects that require a strong background in math, physics, and biology. For any of these majors, you will be required to take a series of rigorous preparation courses to aid you in your understanding of the various chemical fields. The organization of the curriculum will allow you to begin taking chemistry courses, along with other preparation courses, during your first quarters at UCLA.
