Life Sciences Core Curriculum

The Life Sciences Core Curriculum is a common program of study designed to prepare students for any discipline in the life sciences they choose to pursue. The LS Core includes all the preparatory courses for the major and provides a basic background in all disciplines within the life sciences.

The Core curriculum classes must be passed with a grade of C– or better and must be completed with an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better. Students receiving a grade of D or F in two core curriculum courses, either in separate courses or repetions of the same course, are subject to dismissal from the major.
