*Courses count toward Foundational Core

Major Core - 59 Credits


Note:


Students are required to take a minimum of 3 credit hours of either Science Research courses or Science Field Study. Maximum of 3 credit hours can count toward your Biochemistry Specialization requirements. The two Science Research courses can range in credit hours (1 – 3 credits) and Field Study courses can range in credit hours (1 – 3 credits) depending on extent of research. Department Chair &/or Dean approval required for enrollment.

BIOL 4633, BIOL 4643, BIOL 4653, CHEM 4003, CHEM 4013, & CHEM 4023   Special Topics in Biology or Current Topics in Chemistry.

Students may enroll for one Special Topics course for a total of 3 hours only to count toward the required 17 hours of Biochemistry Specialization.
