Biological Science Breadth Requirement

The following courses satisfy the Biological Science area of the Seven Course Breadth requirement. Department headings marked "any" indicate that all undergraduate courses of two units or more offered by that department are acceptable for breadth credit (with exceptions noted). No more than two courses from any one department may be used to satisfy the Seven Course Breadth requirement (L&S Discovery courses are exempt). Courses numbered 84, 97, 98, 99, or above 190 do not receive breadth credit. In cases where any of the courses listed below is offered in the summer (indicated by an "N" prefix) or is offered online (indicated by a "W" prefix), that course will be treated in the same way as its regular semester counterpart and will satisfy this breadth area.
