Students must elect at least one course from each of the three following modules. Where a course appears in more than one module, its selection can satisfy only one of those modules.

Environmental Biology Module

  • BI 210 Plant Biology
  • BI 240 Invertebrate Biology
  • BI 245 Vertebrate Biology
  • BI 255 Animal Behavior
  • BI 260 Marine Biology
  • BI 265 Conservation Biology

Organismal Biology Module

  • BI 205 Introduction to Neuroscience
  • BI 210 Plant Morphology/Function
  • BI 212 Animal Development
  • BI 230 Microbiology
  • BI 240  Invertebrate Biology
  • BI 245 Vertebrate Biology
  • BI 255 Animal Behavior
  • BI 312 Systems Physiology
  • BI 345 Neurobiology

Molecular Biology Module

  • BI 230 Microbiology
  • BI 235 Principles of Biotechnology
  • BI 311Cell Biology
  • BI 325 Immunology
  • BI 330 Virology
  • BI 345 Neurobiology
  • BI 355 Molecular Biology

In addition to the three module electives, a student in the Traditional program must elect one additional biology course from the 200 level or above. BI 132 is the only exception to this rule. Both BI 390 Supervised Research and BI 360 Internship can be used to meet this elective requirement.
