By following this outline, you have a plan to graduate with a Biology degree within four years — plus room to tackle another interest.

First Year

Fall Semester
BIOL 199 General Biology I: Foundations of Living Systems
CHEM 105 General Chemistry I
MATH 171 Elementary Functions

Spring Semester
BIOL 200 General Biology II: Functioning of Living Systems
CHEM 106 General Chemistry II
STAT 213 Applied Statistical Reasoning for the Sciences

Second Year

Diversity of Living Systems (BIOL 201) OR BIOL 251 Fundamentals of Microbiology
CHEM 207 Organic Chemistry I and CHEM 209 Lab
WI-BIOL 300 Biological Literature and Communication
One ethics course: PHIL 207, 310, 311, or THEO 110

Third Year

BIOL 303 Genetics
BIOL 307 Ecology

Fourth Year

BIOL 301 Cell and Molecular Biology
BIOL 348 Evolution

Another Option

Students interested in careers in medicine may wish to complete a Concentration in Biomedical Science.

A possible Outline to Graduate that prepares a student to take the MCAT in the summer after their junior year may resemble:

First Year

Fall Semester
BIOL 199 General Biology I: Foundations of Living Systems
CHEM 105 General Chemistry I
MATH 171 Elementary Functions

Spring Semester
BIOL 200 General Biology II: Functioning of Living Systems
CHEM 106 General Chemistry II
STAT 213 Applied Statistical Reasoning for the Sciences

Second Year

Fall Semester
BIOL 202 Human Anatomy and Physiology I
CHEM 207 Organic Chemistry I and CHEM 209 Lab
MATH 191 Calculus and Analytic Geometry I

Spring Semester
BIOL 204 Human Anatomy and Physiology II
BIOL 251 Fundamentals of Microbiology
*CHEM 208 Organic Chemistry II and CHEM 210 Lab
One ethics course: PHIL 207, PHIL 310, PHIL 311, or THEO 110

Third Year

*CHEM 319 General Biochemistry
WI-BIOL 300 Biological Literature and Communication
BIOL 303 Genetics
PHYS 203 College Physics I and PHYS 204 College Physics II

Fourth Year

BIOL 301 Cell and Molecular Biology
BIOL 307 Ecology
BIOL 348 Evolution

*The Concentration in Biomedical Science requires students to complete either CHEM 208/10 or CHEM 319. Students preparing for careers in medicine are advised to take both courses, which also fulfills the requirements for a Non-Teaching Minor in Chemistry.
