Biology Majors are not required to take BCH2010/2710 and BCH2020/2720 but are required to take BCH2030/2730 and at least 10 units from biochemistry courses at 3000 and above level with accompanied laboratory. These courses should not overlap with those taken for fulfilment of their Major elective requirement.
