Departmental Program Units That Also Satisfy the GIRs (39)
Unrestricted Electives 48
Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree 185-195
No subject can be counted both as part of the 17-subject GIRs and as part of the 185-188 units required beyond the GIRs. Every subject in the student's departmental program will count toward one or the other, but not both.
Notes
* Alternate prerequisites are listed in the subject description. 
(1) These subjects can count as part of the required subjects or as restricted electives, but not both.
(2) Students may elect 9-12 units.
(3) Substitution of similar subjects may be permitted by petition.
