Balance = Success
- Taking more than two science courses (math included) in a semester may be overwhelming. Balance your course load with other general education requirements.
- Medical Terminology (HTHS 1101) is highly recommended before your first course in anatomy and physiology.
- Know the difference—Health Sciences vs. Zoology Anatomy & Physiology
Your program prerequisites may have pre- or co-requisites. If choosing Track II under MLS (see MLS degree pages) you will need to complete prerequisites before you are able to enroll in CHEM 1210 or MICR 2054. Track II pre-med students should also attend a pre-med meeting hosted by the College of Science. Find the next meeting by visiting weber.edu/cos/COS_calendar.html.
