Advising for First Years

Major: Neuroscience (NEUR)


Math Placement

If test into MATH 9, complete CTW and C&I First Year

FALL WINTER SPRING
MATH 9 MATH 35 MATH 36 (or CSCI 10)
CTW 1 CTW 1 or CTW 2 CTW 2 or RTC 1
C&I 1 or CORE C&I 1 or 2 C&I 2 or CORE
PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or CORE PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or CORE PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or CORE

We encourage students to take MATH 35 instead of MATH 11.

If CHEM is taken Second Year, complete CTW and C&I First-Year.

We encourage students to use Drahman Center tutors for help with Math and CHEM.

Students should enroll in NEUR 1 and PSYC 1; it is okay to start CHEM and BIOL 2nd year.

Students are encouraged to enroll in RTC 1 (CORE) in the first year.

Majors must complete or test out of the second level of a second language.

If test into MATH 35 (or 11), and completing CHEM first year, take C&I second year

FALL WINTER SPRING
MATH 35 MATH 36 (or CSCI 10) BIOL 1A or BIOL 1B
CHEM 11 CHEM 12 CHEM 31
CTW 1 CTW 1 or CTW 2 CTW 2 or RTC 1
PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or BIOL 1A PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or CORE

We encourage students to take MATH 35 instead of MATH 11

If CHEM is taken Second Year, complete CTW and C&I First-Year.

The C&I sequence should be completed in the second year if not in the first.

We encourage students to reach out to peer tutors in the Drahman Center for help with Math and CHEM.

Students should enroll in NEUR 1 and PSYC 1. It is okay to start CHEM and BIOL 2nd year.

Students are encouraged to enroll in RTC 1 (CORE) in the first year.

Majors must complete or test out of the second level of a second language.

If test into MATH 12, and completing CHEM, take C&I second year

FALL WINTER SPRING
MATH 12 or CSCI 10 BIOL 1A or 1B BIOL 1A or 1B
CHEM 11 CHEM 12 CHEM 31
CTW 1 or PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 CTW 1 or CTW 2 or RTC 1 CTW 2 or RTC 1
PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 PSYC 1 or NEUR 1 or CORE CORE

Students should take Math 35, but if coming in with Math 11 credit, take Math 12 or CSCI 10 (not Math 36).

If CHEM is taken Second Year, complete CTW and C&I First-Year.

The C&I sequence should be completed in the second year if not in the first.

We encourage students to reach out to peer tutors in the Drahman Center for help with Math and CHEM.

Students should enroll in NEUR 1 and PSYC 1 but it is okay to start CHEM and BIOL 2nd year.

Students are encouraged to enroll in RTC 1 (CORE) in the first year.

Majors must complete or test out of the second level of a second language.

Premed students coming in with credit for Calculus should take a quarter of Calculus at SCU rather than CSCI 10.


Sample Class Schedules. Notes for all options:

*Majors are encouraged to enroll in MATH 35. However, if they have MATH 11 credit, they should enroll in MATH 12 or CSCI 10. Pre-health students should enroll in MATH 12 or 36.

*For detailed information about the CHEM sequence, review notes under Chemistry major.

*The C&I sequence should be completed in the second year if not in the first.

*Majors are encouraged to enroll in NEUR 1 and PSYC 1 the first year.

*The CHEM and BIOL sequences can be taken in the sophomore year.

*If the CHEM sequence is taken sophomore year, then the CTW and C&I sequences must be completed in the first year.

*Students must complete CHEM 11 prior to enrolling in BIOL 1A.

*Students are encouraged to enroll in C&I sequence, RTC 1, and language requirement in the first year.
