Overall…
These majors will:
• allow students to apply 1st year biological science courses

• create greater flexibility for study abroad or double majors

• better serve a wide range of career goals by providing
 curricula that give students the training that best serves
 their needs
How do you enroll?
Next fall, fill out a change of major form in the MBI office
• For the new B.S. in Microbiology, it is a degree change
 within the major
• For the revised A.B. in Microbiology, it is a catalog year
 change within the major (latest catalog year – 2012)
