Sample Curriculum Options

Please note that your schedule doesn’t have to exactly match the sample schedules linked here. These samples are merely suggestions to be used as guides with focus on a 4 year graduation timeline. Students arrive at UCLA with different credit for Chemistry, Math etc., and different placement in each Life Science Core curriculum sequence that might influence their schedule. If you are uncertain about what courses you should take, and when, set up an appointment with an academic advisor.

The sample curriculum options do not take into account upper division major requirements, minor, or double major program requirements. They do also not reflect opportunities for students to complete other university requirements including General Education, Diversity and the 60 upper division graduation requirement.

Scheduling Options for Life Science Core Curriculum

Notes about course planning for the upper division major courses:
Path 1—Students are highly encouraged to take an lab requirement “AL” course in Winter or Spring of their 3rd year. You must take MIMG 101 before enrolling in a lab sequence.
Path 2—Students must apply no later than Winter quarter of their 3rd year.  Exceptions may be made for transfer students. View more information on Path 2 here.
