Bachelor of Science - Environmental Science 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.

1 If the Technical Studies Semester is undertaken in Fall, Year Three, students should follow the Fall, Year Three sequence in Spring, Year Three.
2 15.0 credit hours.
Note: Students must complete all required 1000-level and 2000-level Biology courses by the end of Year Two to be eligible to undertake the required Technical Studies Semester in Year Three. Since spaces are limited, students lacking this necessary background may be deemed ineligible for the assigned Technical Studies Semester and required to change to another major.
