Advising Course Plan - Molecular and Cellular Biology Major - Plan for Transfer Students

This plan indicates an effective way for students who transferred into Stetson as a Molecular and Cellular Biology (MCB) major with 2 years of course credit to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in 2 years.  It is assumed that students transfer credit for BIOL 141P and BIOL 142P, CHEM 141P and CHEM 142P, MATH 130 and MATH 131Q (or MATH 141Q), and most general education courses.

The Junior Seminar can be taken in the spring instead of the fall.


The last two required upper division Biology course must be chosen from BIOL 301, BIOL 314, BIOL 315, BIOL 425, BIOL 401, BIOL 409, BIOL 410, BIOL 415.


Two core courses are required for the MCB major (Core course options: BIOL 302 Genetics, BIOL 425 Cell Biology, and CHEM 204 Biochemistry I). BIOL 302 can be taken instead of CHEM 204.
