4-year plans for MCB majors

Here are three possible 4-year plans for how to complete the MCB majors for students admitted as Freshmen, using fall and spring only to take classes. All of the lower-division classes are offered during the summer, as well.


Example 1: beginning freshman year

  Fall Spring Summer
Freshman

Math 10A
Chem 1A/1AL

Math 10B

Sophomore

Chem 3A/3AL
Physics 8A

Chem 3B/3BL
Physics 8B

 
Junior

MCB C100A or 102
Bio 1B

Example 3: beginning with Fall Program for Freshman (FPF) or Global Edge.

*Math 10A is not currently available to take through FPF or Global Edge. Students can either continue with the Math 1 series or switch to Math 10B. Those who switch series should have a background in statistics and review Math 10A syllabi to determine if they are adequately prepared to take 10B. If you complete the Math 1 series w/ Math 1B, we encourage you to take a Statistics course in order to cover the material missed from Math 10A and 10B. Students who need to complete advanced math courses (Math 53, 54, or 55) may be able to substitute two of these three courses for Math 10A and 10B. Please see an MCB advisor for more information.
