SUGGESTED COUR
SE SELECTION FOR VARIOUS CAREER PATHS

As a service to help you with course selection that will allow you to be prepared for various career paths, we have put together a series of recommended courses that you may want to consider for the following careers.  Remember that your departmental advisor can help you to choose within these lists as to which will best meet your specific career goals.

Pre-health Professions

Generic Pre-health majors:

Biology majors planning a career in medicine, dentistry, optometry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, or other pre-professional fields should follow the recommended curriculum for biology majors.  A year of physics, Calculus I, and one or more semesters of genetics and cell biology are strongly recommended for pre-health professional students.

Biology Pre-Med / Pre-Vet:

  • for students who started before Fall 2012 download this PDF file
  • for students who started during the Fall 2012 download this PDF file

Physical Therapy:  ST210, PH114/115, Human Phys. or Animal Phys (BLY436)., & Microbiology (BLY314)

Thinking about graduate school...

For student planning to pursue graduate education in the sciences, you should take PH 114/115, MA 125 and ST210 as the choices for courses within general biology requirements.
