Undergraduate Course Catalog 2006-2007


Total Credit Hours: 128
Major Credit Hours: 57

A grade of C or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in the sequence.

Environmental Science majors may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for our general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.
