Additional Notes

Scheduling patterns for courses not taught each semester:
Fall and Summer only: BIOL 110 (in the fall, for freshman and sophomores only; spring, juniors and seniors only)
Fall only: BIOL 230W
Spring only: BIOL 220W, BIOL 240W
 
Program Notes: This is only one way to plan your schedule – please consult with a biology advisor to refine your plan. Be aware that most
400 level Biology courses are taught only in one semester and over time, the semester offering can change.
