Undergraduate Program Requirements

IMPORTANT NOTICE

In the 2013-2015 Undergraduate Bulletin, BIO 10100: Scientific World is incorrectly listed as the recommended Flexible Core Course to satisfy the Scientific World Requirement in Pathways. Students should instead elect PHYS 20700: General Physics I to satisfy this requirement. CHEM 10401 is the sole recommended course to satisfy the second Scientific World requirement (Refer to table below).Students in the fifth semester of the EAS Program have the option of taking either BIO 10100 or PHYS 20800. Students focusing on environmental science should opt for BIO 10100; students interested in an atmospheric science track must choose PHYS 20800.
