Courses

Important:

BOTH 310 AND 330 are required for the BA and BS degrees in Biology.  BIOL 310 is the lecture section, which must be taken simultaneously with BIOL 330, which is the lab/recitation course.  To graduate with a BA or BS in Biology, you must have a C or better in both 310 and 330. In the future, if you have a C or better in 330, but need to repeat 310 (the lecture), you will not be required to take 330 a second time.  The reverse is also true, though much less likely.  That is, if you have a C or better in 310, you may repeat 330 if necessary without repeating 310.  However, the first time you register for 310, you must also register for 330, which is listed as a co-requisite for 310.
