Notes:

* Graduate courses used to satisfy both undergraduate and graduate degree program requirements.

** Choose one from PHYS 1112/L (Intro Physics Mechanics) or CHEM 2212/L (Mod Organic Chemistry II) or CSCI 1301/L (Intro Programming).

^ Any GENE graduate elective at 6000-8000 level, chosen in consultation with and approved by the graduate advisor. One of these electives may be taken at the 6000-level from the list of Group 2 major electives required for the BS.

# Students are required to conduct an original research project (GENE 7000, Master's Research), and prepare and defend a Master's thesis on their research (GENE 7300, Master's Thesis).

+ Choose one from GENE 8150/8150L or GENE 8920.
