Course Selection Guidelines
Courses for non-majors:
BCH 335 is a survey course for non-biochemistry majors who have fulfilled the necessary prerequisites as listed below. It is not appropriate for non-science majors looking to fulfill Common Curriculum requirements. Students who have completed BCH 335 cannot enroll in BCH 380 or BCH 382 and vice-versa.
Senior Writing Requirement:
The senior writing requirement may be fulfilled in several ways:
- By completing a senior thesis in conjunction with senior research (BCH 491 , BCH 492 , BCH 493 ).
- By selecting the biology senior seminar that emphasizes cellular/molecular topics, BIO 489 .
- Only in the event that neither of the above options is available, a student could satisfy the WS requirement by writing a research paper requiring extensive background reading in conjunction with taking BIO 380 , CHM 382 or one of the upper level, molecularly-based biochemistry electives, in addition to the regular course work. Students pursuing this option must consult the Director of Biochemistry before the beginning of the senior year to make arrangements.
Requirements for the Minor and Interdepartmental Majors:
It is not permitted to minor in biochemistry. The ID major in which biochemistry is a component is not normally available.
