Biological Science B.S.
The Integrated Biological Science B.S. core requires satisfactory completion of:
|BCOR 011||Exploring Biology||4|
|BCOR 012||Exploring Biology||4|
|BCOR 102||Ecology and Evolution||4|
|BCOR 103||Molecular and Cell Biology||4|
|CHEM 031||General Chemistry 1||4|
|CHEM 032||General Chemistry 2||4|
|CHEM 141||Organic Chemistry 1||4|
|CHEM 142||Organic Chemistry 2||4|
|Choose one of the following options:||5|
and Introductory Lab I
and Introductory Lab II
|Fundamentals of Physics I|
|Fundamentals of Physics II|
|Choose one of the following sequences:||6-8|
|Fundamentals of Calculus I|
and Fundamentals of Calculus II
and Calculus II
|STAT 141||Basic Statistical Methods||3|
|or STAT 211||Statistical Methods I|
In consultation with their academic advisor, students will design a course of study that includes an additional twenty-six credits of advanced life science electives. From the advanced-level electives, students are advised to complete twelve credits from courses with a quantitative component, three credits that stress oral communication and three credits that stress written communication.
Within the advanced-level elective courses, and excluding the BCOR courses, no more than eight credits at the 100-level may apply toward the major except with written permission from an advisor and not exceeding three 100-level courses. With an advisor’s permission, a biologically relevant 300-level course may be applied toward the advanced-level course requirement.
Up to six credits of undergraduate research in any biological discipline may be applied to the twenty-six credits of advanced electives. Only three of these can be taken for credit at the 100-level, and these will be counted in the eight credits allowed at the 100-level.
In their second year, all students are expected to meet with their advisor to map a plan of study for completing their higher-level courses. The plan will be signed by both the advisor and student and will become a part of the student’s record.
Students majoring in the B.S. program in biological science are required to take at least eighty-four credits of course work in the College of Arts and Sciences. This does not apply to CALS students.
