1In addition to BIOL 110 -111  with Labs, students may also wish to consider BIOL 141  - BIOL 142  with Labs as these courses may be required for some graduate programs in the allied health professions.

2The selection of a First Year Seminar may 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.

** Includes a Service Learning Project, coordinated via the department and faculty mentors.
