Advising Course Plan - Biology Major - Study Abroad Interest

This plan indicates an effective way to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and to spend a semester studying abroad.  This basic plan would be altered depending upon your post-graduate plans (mainly by adding specific courses in place of ‘electives’).  Please see other advising plans that consider specific post-graduate plans.
