Summer 2018 Undergraduate Biology Courses (as of May 14)
What courses are being offered by Biology this summer?
BIOL 2020 3.0
Due to limited resources we are unable to offer BIOL 1000 3.0, BIOL 1001 3.0, BIOL 2040 3.0, BIOL 2070 3.0, and BIOL 3130 3.0. Please see below for more information.
Please note that these are exceptions and all other prerequisites will be enforced. These exceptions are only for the Fall.
In Biology we normally strongly enforce prerequisites. This is because we want you to succeed in your courses and data show that students without prerequisites tend to have a significantly higher failure rate and poorer marks that students who do have the prerequisites. That being said we understand the situation that many of you are in and offer the following exceptions that will allow you to take prerequisites at the same time as the course they are required for in Fall 2018.
I need to have BIOL 2021 as a prerequisite to take courses in the Fall to progress through my degree – what can I do?
the S1 term BIOL 2021 may be taken concurrently with BIOL 2020. You must have successfully completed (i.e., passed) or be enrolled in BIOL 2020 in order to enroll in BIOL 2021. We understand that because of the uncertainty surrounding the summer offerings you may already have plans for the summer and are unable to take BIOL 2021 at this time. Please see below for another alternative.

In the Fall 2018 term, in addition to BIOL 2040 and BIOL 2070, we will be offering the following courses not normally offered in that term:
