Total: 124-129.5 Credits

1If not needed, replace with one course in Biology or Chemistry.

2 BCMB 290  is required twice; suggest taken Freshman and Sophomore years.  (Junior year for transfer students is still an option.)

3BIOL 250 , BIOL 344  or BIOL 350 .

4In the third and fourth years, students must complete two of the following courses: BCMB 493 ; BIOL 245 , BIOL 250 , BIOL 344 , BIOL 350 , BIOL 351 , BIOL 358 , BIOL 364 ; CHEM 455 , CHEM 360 , CHEM 370 .

5 The selection of a First Year Seminar is likely to fulfill requirements both for the First Year Seminar and a General Education Requirement.  Thus, the First Year Seminar will not add to the total credits for the semester.  Talk with your advisor if you have any questions.

*An approved 3-credit EP Foundation Course may be substituted for COMM 100  and C/IL 102 -C/IL 104 .  In this case, the total needed for graduation in this major may be reduced.  Consult with your advisor if you have questions.
