What are tracks?
Different tracks of courses have been designated to aid the student in preparation for graduate school, or for further studies in a particular area such as botany. The tracks are offered for guidance only, and as such are not required. However, it is recommended that a track be selected which you consider to be appropriate for your interests. The tracks list courses which may be used as electives to fulfill the required 30 s.h. of course work in biology, excluding Biology I & II (note, however, that the Environmental Science Track has some courses which cannot be applied towards the major requirements). Courses in a track will be taken in addition to the basic core requirements. Because tracks are an advisement and guidance tool, they are not an official degree program recognized by the Registrar and they are therefore not noted on a student's transcript or diploma.
The courses within the Department's tracks are typically subdivided into the following groupings:
• Highly Recommended: If possible, all courses in the group should be taken.
• Suggested Undergraduate Electives: As many as possible of these courses should be taken.
• Suggested Graduate Electives: These are valuable grade courses that may be taken if the student has adequate preparation and the permission of the instructor. These may be taken at the option of the student. Note also that many graduate courses are cross-listed as undergraduate courses; in these instances, a student may only enroll in either the graduate or undergraduate course for credit (not both).
