Bachelor of Science - Neuroscience 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 Students choosing group a in requirements (p. 3 of the Program Planning Guide) are not specifically required to take Mathematics 1410 or Mathematics 1560. You may choose an Elective here instead. Students choosing group b should complete Mathematics 1410 or Mathematics 1560 in Year One, Fall.
2 Students require Three of: Biochemistry 2000; Biology 3000, 3105, 3310, 3400; Neuroscience 3625. Semester of offering for these courses may vary. Please check with the Departments of Biological Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry, or Neuroscience, respectively.
3 Students choosing group a in requirements (p. 3 of the Program Planning Guide) should substitute a 3000/4000-level Science elective.
4 As Neuroscience 4995 is a 6.0 credit course, students should register for it in the Fall.
