Total Major Requirements - Credits: 71
Free Electives (variable)
TOTAL REQUIRED FOR GRADUATION - CREDITS: 120
Note: Students double majoring in Chemistry-Biochemistry Option and Biology-General or Biology-Cellular and Molecular Biology Option may take the senior seminar sequence in either chemistry (Chem 496 and 497) or biology (Bio 496 and 497); these students do not have to take both senior seminar sequences.
Note to transfer and former students: If you have taken any of your major requirements and received a different number of credits than listed above, you may need to complete additional major credit requirements.
Cellular and Molecular Biology Option Suggested Course Sequence
1 The math course that a student will take is determined by a placement test. There are five levels of math that one may enter. Placement into a course lower than Math 110 will delay this schedule, and placement into a higher course than Math 110 will accelerate it.
2 During these semesters students should take additional courses in preparation for biology career, medical school, veterinary, or graduate school. Your biology faculty advisor can help you with the selection of these courses.
