Footnotes:

1 MATH 243 may be substituted with advisor consent.
2 Minimum of 2 credits of lower-division health biology elective must be completed, chosen from the lower-division list above. Alternately, an additional elective from the upper-division list may be taken, in which case a total of at least 23 credits of upper-division health biology electives are required.
3 Minimum of 21 credits of upper-division health biology electives must be completed, chosen from the upper-division list above.
4 PHY 201, PHY 202, PHY 203 may be substituted with advisor consent.
5 Advisor approval of all elective choices is required. Additional courses from the health biology lists above, and/or suitable courses from BUS, MATH or PHY are recommended.

When choosing electives or substituting courses, students are responsible for completing a minimum of 60 credits of upper-division work before a degree will be awarded. Upper-division work is defined as 300 and 400 level classes at a bachelor’s degree granting institution.
