Suggested Semester Schedule
For Biology Majors with a MATH ASSESSMENT LEVEL of 2+ or 2

On this page and other pages containing recommendations regarding suggested semester schedules it is important to realize that it is possible to vary from such a schedule. For example, a BIO Major is able to take Advanced Level BIO courses at the same time as this student is finishing the Introductory Biology courses - as long as pre- and co-requisites for these courses have been met.

NOTE 1: The suggested semester schedule above only contains Biology Major Requirements. For General Education Requirements please contact Academic and Pre-Professional Advising.

NOTE 2: In each examples listed above, the suggested semester schedules are compared to the Suggested Schedule from the Undergraduate Bulletin

 

NOTE 3: An updated Chemistry sequence (CHE 152, 331, 332) started in Fall 2013. It is recommended for students who score 4 or 5 in AP Chemistry or who demonstrated satisfactory performance on the summer chemistry placement exam. Students taking this course (CHE 152) will finish General Chemistry in ONE semester and take the Organic Chemistry sequence (CHE 331, 332) in the U1 Spring and U2 Fall semesters. For further details see the course description for CHE 152 in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

Advice: A student with a Math Assessment Level of 2+ or 2, who can complete MAP 103 during the summer before starting at SBU, will be caught up with the standard suggested semester schedule from the first semester of the Freshman Year. It is HIGHLY recommended that such a student tries to follow this advice.
