(Students registered in Biology 4999E
can satisfy this 0.5 credit with any 4000-level Biology course).
Basic Medical Sciences Disciplines: Anatomy and Cell Biology, Biochemistry, Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Medical Biophysics, Microbiology and Immunology, Pathology, Physiology, and Pharmacology.
Courses in History of Science are not included.
1. If students take Statistical Sciences 2035
or Psychology 2810
instead of Biology 2244A/B
or Statistical Sciences 2244A/B
or the former Statistical Sciences 2122A/B, the module becomes 10.5 courses.
2. Many 4000-level Biology courses require the completion of 1.5 Biology courses at the 3000-level or above.
3. Students with specific Biology interests should visit the departmental
website for course recommendations in various disciplines or contact a Biology Academic Counselor.
