SAFS Majors: Summer/Autumn 2013 Courses and Registration Info

The Autumn Quarter 2013 Time Schedule is now available (All UW or FISH only) – registration begins on May 10. I’ve included a list of courses below that satisfy degree requirements, for reference.


If you have started or completed the BIOL series, BIOL 180, 200 or 220 would be a good choice (since many upper division FISH courses have BIOL as a pre-req) – note that BIOL 200 has a pre-req of CHEM 220.
