*MAT 153 is the prerequisite for physics. Therefore, marine biology majors will also take MAT 153.
- By the end of the sophomore year, students must submit a study plan with the help
of their advisor.
- The study plan must be approved by the faculty of the Biology Program
- Any change in the study plan must be approved by the advisor.
- The study plan is a prerequisite to enrolling in Junior Biology Seminar.
