Paradigm for a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Biology

Servicing those students interested in pre-health science areas such as allopathic/osteopathic medicine, dentistry, podiatry, optometry, chiropractic, PT/OT, veterinary medicine, and Physician Assistant programs. This would also include all persons interested in pursuing a career in scientific research.

Notes:
In the event that FOUR YEARS of high school mathematics were NOT taken (including pre-calculus), Math Analysis (13-120) must be taken concurrently with General Chemistry I (03-110). Similarly, if testing indicates the need to enroll in The Sentence and Paragraph (06-102), or The Essay (06-103), this class must be taken during the first semester.
