Major

The following is based on the Standard Track in the 2010-12 Undergraduate Catalog. For information about the Alternative Track or the Bridge Program in the MLS major, please contact an academic advisor.

Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA and earn grades of C or higher in each course required by the major to continue in the MLS program.

Pre-requisites

The following is a list of required prerequisite science and mathematics courses based on the current Undergraduate Catalog.

  • BSC 197: Molecular & Cellular Basis of Life (4 hrs.)
  • CHE 140: General Chemistry I (4 hrs.)
  • MAT 120: Finite Math (4hrs.) or MAT 144: Precalculus (4hrs.) or MAT 145: Calculus (4 hrs.)
  • BSC 260: Microbiology (4 hrs.) or BSC 160: Microbiology and Society (4 hrs.)
  • CHE 141: General Chemistry II (4 hrs.)
  • CHE 220: Organic Chemistry (5 hrs.)

While all of these courses are required for enrollment in MLS professional courses, successful completion of BSC 197, CHE 140, and CHE 141 (or their transfer equivalents) may also be used for admission criteria by the department.
