  1. Five departmental units.
    1. At least one organismal biology course chosen from: Biology 110, 111, 121, 152, 172, or 208.
    2. At least one unit of molecular-to-cellular biology chosen from: Biology 208, 215, 237, 256, 257, 260, 275 (in consultation with advisor, when topic is appropriate), 289, 300, 340, 345, 347, 360, or 375 (in consultation with advisor, when topic is appropriate).
