 1Sussessful completion of BIOL 141L  and BIOL 142L   satisfies the EP requirement.

2The 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.

++Pre-Physical Therapy students must take BIOL 110-111 .

Each year requires a Service Learning Project, coordinated via the department and faculty mentors.
