Undergraduate Degree Roadmaps

Walkways to Science Building

Bachelor of Science in Biology (BIOLBS06) - Option in Physiology

Five Year Plan - 120 Units Required

General Physiology Track

This degree program requires 82-84 units in the major, of which 39-41 are in lower division and 43 are in upper division, and 34 units of general education beyond the units in the major.  The nine required units of category B, Natural Science and Mathematics, as well as the six floating units in general education, are included within the major units.  That leaves no more than four units of open electives needed to reach the minimum of 120 units required for this degree.  This road map assumes the student enters CSULB without needing remedial courses and ready to start the calculus sequence.  Students not at that level will need additional time to finish the program.
