TOTAL: 120 - 122 Credits  

 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.

3Students with a guaranteed seat in the DPT should consider an advanced PSYC course (PSYC 225  or PSYC 238 ), BIOL 245  with lab, and PHYS 121/PHYS 121L  which are prerequisite courses for the DPT program.

** Includes a Community-Based Learning Project, coordinated via the department and faculty mentors.
