Additional Information and Notes


* These are required support courses which may also be used to satisfy the indicated Distribution requirements. A student may choose to fulfill Distribution requirements with courses other than the ones listed, but these listed courses must still be taken.

Note: If a course is used to satisfy two or more requirements, (for example, a support course and a distribution elective), the credits are counted in only one place. Using a course to satisfy more than one requirement does not reduce the total credits required for graduation.

+ Electives within the major are to be chosen from 300 to 400 level courses, exclusive of BIO 302T , BIO 304 , BIO324 and BIO 328 . A maximum 4 credits from BIO 407 , BIO 408N , BIO 416 , BIO 418 , BIO 420  or BIO 422  may be used to fulfill one BIO Elective; additional credits will count as Free Electives. Secondary Education minors must select BIO 320 , and one course in Geological Sciences.

† Three of the four group electives MUST have a lab.

‡ The sequence can be chosen from PHS 211A  and PHS 212A , or PHS 221  and PHS 222 .
