 Degree Audit

Please refer to the new 14-16 Degree Checklist, run your Degree Audit and contact your Academic Advisor if you want to change your Human Biology Degree Profile to the new 14-16 Catalog.

 

Human Biology for 08-10, 10-12 and 12-14 Catalogs:

BIO 137 Human Biology seminar is NOW OPTIONAL.
You are not required to take the course. If you choose to take the course, you can do so any semester with credit for or registration in BIO 346 Human Biology. It is a 1 hour Pass/Fail course.

Human Biology Concentration Options by Groups
As long as you complete at least 9 hours in your designated Concentration, up to 6 hours can come from the other concentrations within the same group. These options do not require a petition. You must still have at least 9 hours of Upper Division Concentration courses from the 15 required hours.

Biology group includes Concentrations #1-3
1. Cell, Molecular and Developmental Biology
2. Genetics and Biotechnology
3. Pathogenesis and Immunity

Interdisciplinary group includes Concentrations #4-6
4. Social Aspects of Health and Disease
5. Problems of Developing Countries
6. Human Impact on the Environment


Human Biology Courses by Petition

In addition to the Concentration courses listed on the Human Biology Degree Check list, the following courses can substitute for a concentration course by petition. These courses are not necessarily offered each semester, refer to the Course Schedule to verify. Please see your Academic Advisor in the BAC if you need to have a course petitioned towards your concentration. You must be enrolled in the course and the semester must have started to begin the petition process. If you want to petition a course that is not on the list, please provide a syllabus for evaluation to your Academic Advisor.
