_____
1 Capstone course can be selected from the following: CHEM 4320L (Molecular Structure and Organic Synthesis Lab, 2), CHEM 4310L (Synthesis Lab, 2), CHEM 4080/4083 sequence (Undergraduate Research, 0/3, requires permission of the Department Head), and CHEM 4150L (Genomics and Proteomics Lab, 2).

2    The choice of biology electives must conform to the following two guidelines:

  1. Total biology hours must be at least 22, including General Biology I-II.
  2. All four advanced biology electives must come from groups A and B below. At least one course must be taken from each of the two groups.

Group A: BIOL 3350/3350L (Anatomy and Physiology); BIOL 3160/3160L (Embryology), BIOL 4111/4111L (Histology); BIOL 4091/4091L (Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy).

Group B: BIOL 2010/2010L (Microbiology), BIOL 3070/3070L (Immunology), BIOL 3091/3091L (Cell Biology), BIOL 3110/3110L (Genetics), BIOL 3250 (Microbial Physiology) BIOL 4250/4250L (Molecular Genetics).

3    MATH 1020 (STAT 2010) is recommended as an elective for students planning a career in the health professions.

4    PHIL 2400 is recommended for students planning a career in the health professions.
