* The choice of biology electives must conform to the following two guidelines:

  1. Total biology hours must be at least 22, including General Biology I-II.
  2. All four advanced biology electives must come from groups A and B below. At least one course must be taken from each of the two groups.

Group A: BIOL 3350/3350L (Anatomy and Physiology); BIOL 3160/3160L (Embryology), BIOL 4111/4111L (Histology); BIOL 4091/4091L (Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy).

Group B: BIOL 2010/2010L (Microbiology), BIOL 3070/3070L (Immunology), BIOL 3091/3091L (Cell Biology), BIOL 3110/3110L (Genetics), BIOL 3250 (Microbial Physiology) BIOL 4250/4250L (Molecular Genetics).

** Philosophy 2400 is recommended for students planning a career in the health professions; Philosophy 3250 is recommended for those planning a career in research.


ACCELERATED 3 + 1 PROGRAM IN CHEMISTRY (PREPROFESSIONAL)
This program may be followed by qualified students who would like to seek admission into a professional school at the end of their junior year. These students may substitute equivalent courses from their professional school for those required in the senior year at Xavier and be eligible to receive the B.S. degree from Xavier at the end of four years.
