Bachelor of Science - Agricultural Biotechnology Sample Sequencing Plan (2009 / 2010)

Shown below is a sample sequence of courses for your degree. If you follow this plan, you should be able to graduate in four years, provided you complete five courses per semester. This is just one example of how you could complete your major and degree requirements; you may find that a different sequence works as well as this one.

2 Statistics 1770 - Introduction to Probability and Statistics is strongly recommended.
3 Students are required to complete one of Biology 3005 or Biology 3115, but are advised to take both of these courses.
Note: Students choosing to complete requirements for the Concentration in Agricultural Business should choose those prescribed courses in place of non-science `Electives.' One course in Economics or Political Science from the `Three of' list may replace the GLER course (List II) in Fall Year Two.
Students are strongly advised to consult with the Department of Biological Sciences and the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry regarding the sequencing of the above courses.
