Restricted Elective
One advanced subject from the following list(2) (students may petition the department to substitute an upper level subject in science or engineering):
1.064 Physical Limnology, 12;1.061
1.071J Global Change Science, 12; 18.03
1.072 Groundwater Hydrology, 12; 1.061

Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs
Unrestricted Electives
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 180 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
*Alternate prerequisites and corequisites are listed in the subject description. 
(1) Any of the subjects that fulfill the Institute Chemistry Requirement is satisfactory, though 5.111 or 5.112 is recommended.
(2) Students are encouraged to take both 1.00 and 1.010, in which case one may be counted as a restricted elective.
