two additional 200- or 300-level courses in biology or chemistry, one of which must be a lecture course. The second unit may include only one research course.
Students should complete a full year of calculus or its equivalent by the end of sophomore year. This may be satisfied by AP credit or by Math 122, 125, or 126/127. Consult with the mathematics department for proper placement.
In their first year, students are strongly advised to take the Introductory Biology series BIOL 105 and BIOL 106 as well as General Chemistry CHEM 108/CHEM 109 or CHEM 125. Calculus should be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Such a program is appropriate not only for a concentration in biochemistry, but also for a concentration in biology or chemistry.
