Suggested course sequence

The set of courses that you will take to obtain your degree in Biology seek to accomplish different goals in your education. These are divided into those required by the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras campus to fulfill your general education, the College of Natural Sciences to fulfill your science knowledge, and the Department of Biology to fulfill your specialty and research enterprise. Passing the Advanced Placement (AP) tests in Mathematics and Language will determine the sequence of courses that you will take to complete your degree requirements.

Depending on the which of the areas of emphasis in our curriculum you choose to follow, we have developed an excel table that includes the curricular sequence (with and without approved AP tests) that you can download by clicking the appropriate link below:
