487. Senior Thesis
A substantial capstone project to be completed during the senior year. Studio majors conceive,
create, and mount an exhibition of a new body of work. Art history majors research an art
historical problem, write a research paper, prepare an abstract, and provide a public
presentation of their work with the goal of creating an original contribution to the discipline. An
oral defense is required for either major. No S/U option.

514. Life Drawing (1/4)
Open studio for working from the human figure. Does not fulfill fine arts credit. (CR) No S/U

This interdisciplinary major is designed to prepare students for graduate school or a technical
career in biochemistry/molecular biology. It is also a suitable preparation for the health
professions. The curriculum is drawn from the Departments of Biology and Chemistry, with
emphasis on cellular biology, genetics, and biochemistry, and laboratory techniques in these

Major: A minimum of 13 course credits (12 courses if CHE 161 is taken) in Biology and
Chemistry, which include these 12 required courses: BIO 141 and 142 (Foundations: Cellular
Biology, and Foundations: Organismal Biology), BIO 205 (Cell and Molecular Biology), BIO 315
(Genetics); CHE 121 and 122 (Chemical Principles I and II) or 161 (Accelerated General
Chemistry), CHE 202 (Analytical Chemistry), CHE 225, 326, and 327 (Organic Chemistry I, II,
and Laboratory), CHE 334 (Biochemistry); BMB 485 (Problems); and one course selected from
BIO 305 (Advanced Topics in Molecular Biology), BIO 313 (Developmental Biology), BIO 326
(Microbiology), BIO 327 (Immunology), BIO 328 (Neurobiology), BIO 335 (Chemical Ecology)
or CHE 323 (Physical Chemistry I).

Recommended courses are BIO 211 (Evolution); MAT 121 and 122 (Calculus of a Single
Variable and Calculus of Several Variables); PHY 141-142 (Introductory Physics I and II) or PHY
161-162 (General Physics I and II); and PHY 263 (Laboratory Physics).

Biochemistry/Molecular Biology majors desiring to minor in Chemistry must complete at least
two appropriate courses in Chemistry beyond those counted for the Biochemistry/Molecular
Biology major. Biochemistry/Molecular Biology majors desiring to minor in Biology must do so
by completing BIO 211, BIO 321, and an upper-level elective course chosen from the plant or
animal grouping. (See Declaration of Degree Candidacy, Majors, and Minors.)
