Biology Electives (14 credits): Select 3 courses from the following list in consultation with the advisor (2 must have a lab):
Biology courses at the 200 or 300 level [Biology 307 (Cell Biology) may combine with BCMB 310 (Methods in Cell Biology and Biochemistry) to satisfy a lab elective]
Chemistry 414 (Biochemistry) [may combine with BCMB 310 (Methods in Cell Biology and Biochemistry) to satisfy a lab elective]
Chemistry 416 (Mechanisms of Drug Action)
Neuroscience 270 (Neuroscience) [may combine with Neuroscience 350 (Neuroscience Research Methods) to satisfy a lab elective]
Senior Research (4 credits):
Normally, students will have two advisors: one who advises the mathematical component of their senior research and one who advises the biological component of their research. Each student will take three semesters of seminar, one the spring of their junior year (1 credit), and one each semester of their senior year (2 credits fall, 1 credit spring).
Math 386 (Junior Sem) or Math 452, 485-486 (Senior Seminar)
If considering grad school in Ecology it is strongly recommended that students take Bio 315, CS 142, and Math 311.
If considering grad school in Mathematics, Biomathematics, or Mathematical Ecology it is strongly recommended that students take Math 201, 261, and 321.
Students should consider Bio 160, Bio 214, or EnvS 160 as a means of fulfilling their F-11 requirement.
Physics 111 + 111L (Fundamentals in Physics I) as appropriate to career goals
