It is strongly recommended that students who wish to take the MCAT take an ethics course as part of their Philosophical Inquiry Domain and PSY 105, PSY 106 & SOC 101 for their Social, Cultural, and Behavioral Inquiry. Biology courses other than the General Biology sequence that have any Scientific Inquiry domain designation do not generate credit toward the major or minor.

Open Electives

Open elective credit also is required to meet the minimum graduation requirement of 192 hours.
