Additional Notes

General Education Notes:

GWS, GHA, GQ, GN, GA, GH, and GS are codes used to identify General Education requirements.
W is the code used to designate courses that satisfy University Writing Across the Curriculum requirement.
US/IL are codes used to identify courses that satisfy University United States/International Cultures requirements. All students are required to take one US and one IL course. A course designated as US;IL may be used as a US or an IL, not both.

Major Requirements Notes:

Students may take Phys 211, 212, 213, & 214 in place of 250 & 251. See advisor.
BIOL 220W is only offered in the fall semesters.
BIOL 230W is offered only in the spring in odd years.
BIOL 240W is offered only in the spring in even years.

Students must take a minimum of 18 credits of 400-level biology courses, with at least 3 credits from each of the following groups (each course may be used to satisfy a requirement in only one group) (Sem: 5-8)
Group I (Plants and Fungi); Group II Evolutionary Biology; Group III (Genetics and Development); Group IV (Ecology); Group V (Animal Physiology); Group VI (Practicum). Courses offered to complete these major requirements may be offered on a rotating basis.


This is a recommended academic plan and degree requirements for the major (and options) may change periodically.  Students should consult with their academic advisor at least once a semester to select appropriate courses and to keep abreast of new degree requirements and course offerings.
