Advanced Evolution and Ecology

Biological Science Electives

The following courses are acceptable toward the fulfillment of the upper division biological sciences requirement in the B.S. major program and may be selected without advisor approval. Other elective courses are approved on an individual basis by petition through an advisor.

Variable Unit Courses

A maximum of 4 units of variable-unit courses (numbered 192, 198, 199) may be applied to upper division elective requirements.
