These core requirements are mandatory for each B.S. option.

Organismal Diversity Requirement (Catalogs Before Fall 2008):

The following courses fulfill the B.S. core Organismal Diversity Requirement, which requires all students in the Biology B.S. program to take at least one advanced (300 or 400 level) animal course, one advanced plant course, and one advanced course covering other organisms (fungi, protists, bacteria, viruses).  These courses may be contained within the core or taken as electives.
