Recommended Course Schedule: Capital Scholars Honors Students

The following schedule is one of many alternatives. You should contact an advisor as early as possible to plan a schedule based on your background and interests.

CAP/Chemistry students planning to spend a semester abroad should normally plan to be abroad during the spring semester of the junior year.

See your Chemistry advisor no later than the first semester of your second year to begin planning how to complete the requirements for your major in conjunction with your semester abroad.
