With permission, Chemistry credits may be done concurrently with credits in Ichthyology. Refer to the Rhodes University Calendar (page 179) for further details.

Students wishing to major in Ichthyology are required to have one first-year semester-credit in Mathematics and at least one first-year semester-credit in either Statistics or Computer Science (with the exception of the literacy course (CSC 1L1)). See Rule S.23.
