Course Notes

Some graduate health professional programs, such as Physical Therapy and Pharmacy, may require two semesters of human anatomy as a prerequisite for admittance. If you are planning to attend one of these schools, it is recommended that you take the Anatomy and Physiology I sequence (BIO 2311  /BIO 2111  ) and choose the Anatomy and Physiology II sequence (BIO 2312  /BIO 2112  ) as an elective.

Enrollment in MAT 2317  (Calculus I) is dependent upon performance on the Math placement exam. Some students may need to take one or all of the following courses to meet the pre-requisites for Calculus I: MAT 1311  (College Math), MAT 1312  (Pre-Calculus I), MAT 1313  (Pre-Calculus II). NOTE: Students may choose to take MAT 1401  (Precalculus and Trigonometry) in place of both MAT 1312  and MAT 1313  .

Advanced Chemistry elective to be selected from: CHE 4314  – Quantum Mechanics; CHE 4315  – Adv. Analytical Chemistry; CHE 4316  – Adv. Organic Chemistry; CHE 4317  – Adv. Inorganic Chemistry; CHE 4346  – Biochemistry II.

If PHY 2331  and PHY 2131  are taken instead of PHY 2331  and PHY 2332  , a C or better must be made in MAT 2317  before taking PHY 4301  – Modern Physics I.

Advanced Physics elective to be selected from: PHY 3334  - Optics; PHY 3335  - Electricity & Magnetism I; PHY 3325  – Introduction to Biophysics; PHY 3233  - Investigations and Research
