The MCB sample 4-year plan should be used in collaboration with your Molecular and Cell Biology Academic Advisor. There is flexibility in course selection and sequencing. The course plan may vary per student depending on AP credit, transfer credit, placement exams and student goals.
Students are strongly encouraged to build in internship, research, volunteer, study abroad experiences, etc. See the Student Resources and Undergraduate Research tabs for more information on these experiences.
