Advanced Life Science Electives

In year two, you meet with your advisor to map a plan of study for completing your higher-level courses. The plan is signed by both the advisor and you and becomes a part of your student record. The upper level courses listed below are pre-approved to count toward the Advanced Life Science requirement for the B.S. degree in Biological Science.

When a course also meets one or more of the degree requirements for "S" (Quantitative or Statistical), "O" (Oral), and/or "W" (Written) components, notations are provided in the skillset column below. Out of 26 Advanced Life Science Elective credit hours,12 credits should have a quantitative or statistical component, 3 credits should cover oral communication, and 3 credits should satisfy written communication.

The following list may not fully reflect current offerings or options for fulfilling the Advance Life Science requirement. Course offerings change over time and this list is updated annually at best. Consult with one of the Integrated Biological Science program directors to determine whether a course not on this list can be used to fulfill the degree's Advanced Life Science Elective requirement.
