Marine Biology BS: Freshmen Academic Planners

Be sure to take all of your major requirement courses for a letter grade.

GE - General Education requirement course.  Remember to add your General Education requirements to your plan.

ME - Major Exploration are courses to include in your academic plan to explore other majors/minors you might be interested in.

Prioritize enrollment in Bioe 20C,  math and chemistry courses in your first year to ensure you are qualified to declare your major by the end of your second year.

In second, third and fourth year plans only Ecology and Evolution major requirements are listed.  You will add a third course to be full time.  For example, this third course can be a GE requirement, a course of general interest, a prerequiste course for graduate or professional school, an undergraudate research course, or a minor requirement.

PLAN 1:  If you are beginning with MATH 3 and want time for major exploration.
