Biological Sciences Requirements

All students within the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences must complete General Education Requirements. These courses provide breadth to your education beyond training in the Biological Sciences. All majors within the Department of Biological Sciences must also complete Co-requisite courses in Chemistry, Math, and Physics; these courses give you the scientific background to maximize your education within the Biological Sciences major.

The major progress tracker below is a comprehensive list of the courses Biological Sciences majors must complete to obtain the B.S. degree. Review the BIOSC Courses webpage for available BIOSC electives. Make sure to visit our other Bio. Sci. webpages for scheduling tips and a sample schedule. Please see a Biological Sciences Advisor for any questions about planning your schedule.


Biological Sciences Major Progress Tracker:

It is the student's responsibility to track their progress through the major and general education requirements. All Biological Science majors are required to bring an updated progress tracker (and Old Gen Ed supplement) to their pre-enrollment appointment in order to have their hold lifted.
