Welcome students! 

The course pages on the side menu aim to help freshman find enriching experiences in Biology at Washington University.

Courses marked with an asterisk* engage freshman in discussions about current biological research. They are optional and do not replace requirements for the Biology major or for pre-health careers. See the Handbook for Biology Majors for details of Biology major requirements.

Bio 1260, Bio 2651, Bio 2654, Bio 2950 and Bio 3100 are available to freshmen as well as upper-level students.
