Requirements for Majors at CAMS

Science Courses

In general, students should complete at least one science course (PHYS2101 or CHEM2101 or BIOL2101) to be eligible for majoring. The only exception is Agricultural Engineering where students are asked to complete at least two science courses (as shown in the table below) in order to be considered for majoring.  The remaining third course must be finished in the following semester.  In addition, Agricultural Engineering major requires a minimum C grade in the science courses.

Cumulative GPA

Besides completion of specific courses some majors, such as Agricultural Engineering and Human Nutrition specify minimum cumulative GPA (as shown below) that should be obtained before applying for majoring.
