Catalog 2015-2016 > College of Natural and Health Sciences > Department of Biology > Biology Degrees > B.S. and B.A. in Biology Concentrations > Four-Year Degree Plan for Major in Biology, B.S., with a Concentration in Pre-Health Professions
Note that this is a sample four-year plan. There are other course sequences that will allow a student to graduate within four years as long as prerequisite courses are taken in the proper sequence.
Upper-division biology courses (above BIO 199 and MAR 200) require completion of the lower-core curriculum with a grade of “C” or better in each course — BIO 198, BIO 199, CHE 152, CHE 153, CHE 154, CHE 155, MAT 170.
Note: The math requirement and natural science component of the Baccalaureate Experience are fulfilled by courses in the above sequence (i.e., BIO 198, CHE 152, MAT 260).
Many of the pre-health professions concentration elective biology classes are offered only in the fall or spring. It is the student’s responsibility to track the semesters in which they are offered. In addition, many of the electives are required for admission into certain professional schools. It is the student’s responsibility to research such admission requirements and to select the appropriate courses through their biology electives and major courses. Note that CHE 152–153 and CHE 252–253 are typically offered only in the fall and CHE 154–155 and CHE 254–255 are typically offered only in the spring. Failure to take these courses prior to the end of year three may result in a delay in applications for professional schools. These courses and others are often available during summer terms.
