Program Planning


Bachelor of Science/Bachelor of Education, Biological Sciences/Science Education 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 five 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.
