*Courses for Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4:

Group 1 courses are required and include: Eng 110 and 130, Psych 111, Psych 250, Psych 270, Soc 110, Comm 110, and a Statistics course (Psych 241, Soc 326 or other course as approved)

Group 2, 3 and 4 courses include options for Biology major requirements/electives or other requirements/sensible electives for PA school:
Group 2 Fall courses: Biol 312, Biol 312R, Comm 212, Med 205, Nutr 240
Group 2 Spring courses: Biol 341, Comm 212, Med 204, Nutr 240

Group 3 Fall courses: Biol 364+L, Chem 333
Group 3 Spring courses: MBio 302+L

Group 4 Fall courses: Biol 378, Biol 390, Biol 420, MBio 328
Group 4 Spring courses: Biol 369+L, Biol 415, PPT 315

**OChem and BioChem requirements vary greatly from PA school to PA school. To be sure most regional PA school requirements are covered, we recommend Chem 341-342 and BMB 301. If, however, a student wishes to only do Chem 340+L and BMB 301, they should take Anat 204+L in place of Chem 341+L (sophomore fall) on the above schedule. Please see Health Sciences Advisor for details and for help with choosing requirements and electives for this program!!

All students must fulfill Essential Studies requirements to graduate: http://und.edu/academics/essential-studies/requirements.cfm
