Notes

Mason accepts ENG 125, Introduction to Literature in lieu of ENG 112.  ENG 125 is equivalent to ENGH 201, which fulfills our literature requirement.

While MTH 173/MATH 113 satisfies the math requirement for the B.S. Biology program, students who expect to enter professional school are strongly encouraged to also complete MATH 174/MATH 114.
