Neuroscience

This represents a typical first-year plan for students studying neuroscience; however, our program offers a great deal of flexibility for students who wish to continue a language in their first year, double major, study abroad in the future, etc. If students take more than one lab science course, or are involved in co-curricular activities with significant time commitment, in their first semester, we advise taking PED 111 (Wellness) in the second semester.

Nursing

The Nursing department strongly recommends BIOL 121 (Cell Biology) and CHEM 127 (General Chemistry) and CHEM 142 (Survey of Organic and Biochemistry). If students take CHEM 128 instead of CHEM 142, they should note they will not have the same level of preparation for CHEM 304 (Pharmacology). Therefore, the Nursing department recommends the CHEM 127 and CHEM 142 sequence.
