Four Year Road Map- Biology Major

This plan is designed to make it easy to move into other biological science majors. The Road Map is a tool to assist you and your advisor in planning your academic career. Use it along with the Curriculum Sheet (CALS) for your major, your DARS report, and the Course Guide. Your specific program of study could, and probably will, look different. You need to customize the Road Map to fit your situation. Consult with your advisor about the best path for you.
