Directed Electives

To ensure that ENB undergraduates obtain both strength and breadth of knowledge, 25 elective credit hours in biology must be obtained through courses designed for juniors or seniors (i.e., courses numbered 300 or higher). Among them must be courses that satisfy requirements A-C (below).

  • Field Experience Elective
    At least 3 elective credits must come from an approved field biology course (in addition to the core field course, EFB 202). These credits may be obtained through an elective course at Cranberry Lake Biological Station; an approved field course from another accredited institution; an approved internship (EFB 420) or independent research project (EFB498); or a field trip course (EFB 500). Some courses at CLBS meet both requirement A and a diversity requirement.
  • Structure and Function
    At least 3 credit hours must be in the subject area of organism-level physiology, anatomy, or development. The list of allowable courses below may vary slightly from year to year.
    • EFB 385 Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy (4 cr.) S
    • EFB 427 Plant Anatomy and Development (3 cr.) F
    • EFB 462 Animal Physiology: Environmental and Ecological (3 cr.) F
    • EFB 530 Plant Physiology (3 cr.) S
    • EFB 570 Insect Physiology (3 cr.) S
    • BIO 447 Immunology (3 cr.) F
    • BIO 503 Developmental Biology (3 cr.) S
  • Organismal Diversity
    To encourage breadth in organism-level biology, students must complete at least one course from two of the four groups. (A course from each of the groups is strongly recommended).
    • Diversity of Microorganisms
      • EFB 303 Introductory Environmental Microbiology (4 cr.) F
      • EFB 340 Forest and Shade Tree Pathology (3 cr.) S
      • EFB 342 Fungal Diversity and Ecology (3cr.) CLBS
      • EFB 428 Mycorrhizal Ecology (3 cr) F even years
      • EFB 440 Mycology (3 cr.) F
    • Diversity of Plants
