Alternate Science Sequences - 2002-2003 Requirements


A student may petition to replace the physics sequence with a coherent sequence of four acceptable courses in the natural sciences, including at least one course at the 3000 level or higher. The petition must identify the four courses and must explain the student's interest in those courses. While laboratory courses are strongly encouraged, laboratory courses worth fewer than three credit hours may not be counted among the four courses.

The following are examples of possible science sequences. This list is not meant to be exhaustive but rather to illustrate a few possible courses of study. In each case, four courses that could be included in the petition are marked with an asterisk. When preparing your petition, pay close attention to course prerequisites.

The sequences shown here all satisfy the full 17 hour Natural Sciences requirement with a single coherent sequence. A program of this type is appropriate for students with a specific scientific interest. Note, however, that the science sequence need only constitute four courses, and students are free to choose any acceptable science courses to fill the 17 hour requirement beyond the four course sequence.
