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
  • BIOL 430

Spring only: 

  • BIOL 220W
  • BIOL 240W
  • BIOL 322

Program Notes: This is only one way to plan your schedule - please consult with a biology advisor to refine your plan. Be aware that mose 400 level Biology courses are taught only in one semester and over time, the semester offering can change.
