The "nuts and bolts" of completing a Biology major at Dartmouth are listed below. For more detailed information, please visit our ORC listing on the Registrar's web site. The department has also posted syllabi from many of our courses that you may find helpful in selecting courses.

One Quantitative Course: Biology 29, Computer Science 1, 5, Economics 10, Psychological and Brain Sciences 10, Sociology 10, Earth Sciences 17, Engineering Sciences 20, Mathematics 4, 8 or above. The quantitative course is not a pre-requisite for Foundations Courses, but we recommend taking it early in your program.

To complete the major, you must complete three of the Foundation courses, each of which has a laboratory component. The Foundation courses may be taken in any order. You do not have to complete all three before you begin taking courses numbered 20 or above. However, you will need to complete the Foundation courses that are specified prerequisites for such courses. You may elect to take more than three for your area of concentration.

In consultation with your Biology advisor, you will "build" an area of concentration that is composed of six more Biology courses (Bio 12-97). It is possible to count up to two advanced-level courses from other departments in your area of concentration. Your advisor will give you guidance on which courses may be appropriate. One of the six courses must be a Biology course numbered Bio 50 or above. This will satisfy the culminating experience requirement. Although only one course at this level is required, we strongly encourage you to take more than one of these courses; these are small, seminar style courses that focus on a particular topic. Because they are structured differently, they offer students a refreshing alternative to the more traditional, lecture style courses.

Please keep in mind that this list is not rigid or exhaustive. The courses listed for each area are suggestions to help you get started. Students are not required to limit themselves to courses listed under a single area.

It is also possible to engineer an area of concentration that is not listed. Any Biology faculty member may serve as your advisor, even if they are not listed under a specific area of concentration (provided they feel comfortable advising you).

Our hope is that together with your advisor you will design a major that fulfills your unique interests and goals.
