Political Economy 100
Political Economy 101
Sociology 110


Cognitive Science Majors


Computer Science/Electrical Engineering

CS10**
CS 61A
CS 61BL*
CS 61C (At least one 61-series course must be completed at Berkeley in order to apply for the CS major. Most transfer students take CS 61A and CS 61C at Berkeley.)
Math 53 (not required for LSCS)
Math 54

**CS10 is a prerequisite to CS61A for those with NO programming experience (it replaces the old CS3).


Economics Majors

Econ 1: If you have not taken both Intro to Macro and Intro to Micro or the equivalent, you'll need to take Econ 1. AP scores of 4 or 5 on both the macro and micro exams will waive this requirement for Econ majors.
Math 1A/1B or 16A/16B: If you have not completed your calculus series, you will need to do so before taking any upper division Economics courses (AP scores may waive one or both of the courses for Econ majors). If students are unsure about their math background, we strongly recommend they take Math 16B during the summer prior to starting at Berkeley, even if they have previously already taken this course elsewhere.
Math 53: If you are planning on taking Econ 101A in the fall, you will need to have Math 53 prior to taking it.

Beyond the courses above, the Economics Department encourages intended majors to fulfill their American Cultures requirement.


Media Studies Majors

Transfer students who have not completed all prerequisites for the major are encouraged to enroll in one course during summer session.
Media Studies N10: You must complete this course to be eligible to declare the major. Consult assist.org to determine if you have already completed a course that satisfies this prerequisite.

Students who have completed all four prerequisites for the major may enroll in one upper division course. Please speak with the Undergraduate Adviser in Media Studies or consult our website (mediastudies.ugis.berkeley.edu/).


Molecular and Cell Biology Majors

Transfer students who have not completed all prerequisites for the major are encouraged to enroll in one course during Summer Sessions. Students who have completed all prerequisites for the major may enroll in MCB 102, if appropriate. Please speak with an adviser in the MCB Undergraduate Affairs Office for placement.

Physics 77: Prerequisites: Mathematics 1A and Physics 7A (which may be taken concurrently), or permission of instructor.
Physics 89: This course satisfies the Math 54 requirement for physics majors at UC Berkeley.  Prerequisites: Mathematics 1A and Math 1B, Math 53 or permission of instructor
Physics 111A - Instrumentation Laboratory Topics: The instrumentation lab (formerly Basic Semiconductor Circuits) is an introductory course in basic design, analysis and modeling of circuits, and data analysis and control.  Prerequisites: Physics 7A, 7B and 7C, or consent of instructor
Molecular and Cell Biology 102: If you have completed one year of Organic Chemistry and one year of Biology, and intend to major in Cell & Developmental Biology, Developmental Genetics, Neurobiology or the Infectious Disease track of Immunology, you can take MCB 102.


Psychology Majors

Transfer students who have not completed all prerequisites for the major are encouraged to enroll in one course during summer session. Refer to the Psychology department's website on lower division requirements for further information.
