First Year at a Glance

In first year you are required to take Biology 1110 and 1130 – Animal and Plant Biology, respectively – as well as Introductory Chemistry I & II, Calculus I & II, and Calculus I & II for Social Life and Sciences in addition to three elective courses that must not be within the Department of Biology.

If you are considering a career in the health sciences, we advise you to take a Physics course as one of your available electives.

Your Biology and Chemistry courses will have corresponding lab components, and your Calculus courses will have tutorials in addition to in-class lecture. This will provide time to study and to interact with your professors and teaching assistants.
