Program, Chemistry 41 (excluding courses numbered 90-99).

B. Premedical and predental requirements: BIOL 12a, b; 20a and 21b will satisfy the
general biology entrance requirement of most medical schools.

C. Joint Biology-Chemistry Option: A student may graduate with a joint major in
Biology and Chemistry if in addition to BIOL 12a, b, 20a, 21b, one Biology elective and
BCHEM 100 she/he elects: CHEM 41a,b and 49a,b, 121a; PHYS 3 la or MATH 20a or

D. Biophysics Option: To encourage students wishing to concentrate in Biology to
acquire the extra mathematical, physical, and chemical background needed for the area


of Biophysics, the Department offers an option which contains a reduced number ofj
biology courses and an increased number of courses in the other science areas. Students!
will take: MATH 10a, and 19b or 10b, or 12 and 20 or equivalent; CHEM 10, 11, or 15]
with 18a,b or 19a,b and 25a,b with 29a,b and 41a,b; PHYS 10a,b or 1 la,b with 18a,b or
19a,b and 20a,b, BIOL 20a and 21b and three courses chosen from among BIOL 32a,!

Students with a grade average of 3.3 in science courses taken before the senior year
may petition to the Department to accept successful completion of the Biophysics
option as fulfilling the departmental requirements for distinction.

E. Biochemistry Concentration: There is a biological option open to students con-
centrating in Biochemistry. Such students will be advised jointly by members of both
departments. For details see Biochemistry concentration requirements.

F. Advanced Standing: Credit for a year of Biological Science will be awarded upon
successful completion of the Advanced Placement Examination with a grade of 3, 4 or
5. In order to concentrate in Biology, however, any such candidate must also pass a
departmental examination (given each Fall during the first week of classes) which is
equivalent to the final examinations given in Biology 12a,b, 20a and 21b.

A student is eligible for advanced standing in any course in the Biology Department if
she/he is (a) recommended for advanced standing by the staff member teaching the
course in question and (b) if this recommendation is approved by the Biology staff.
Minimum requirement is the satisfactory passing of an examination equivalent to the
final examination normally administered for the course for which advanced standing is

G. No course offered for concentration requirements in Biology may be taken on a
pass /fail basis.

Satisfactory grades (C or above) must be maintained in all Biology courses offered for
concentration, and no more than one D will be allowed in any other course offered
toward the requirements in this Department.

H. Senior Honors Program: Students who wish to be considered a candidate for
honors in biology should have a generally satisfactory academic record and 3.3 grade
point average in Biology and required science courses. Laboratory research (Biology 99)
is the main component of the honors program. A candidate is required to petition the
Biology staff at the beginning of her/his senior year. Detailed instructions are available
in the Biology Office.

All students are welcome to enroll in any course in the program, unless prerequisites
are stipulated. The common text in all courses is in English. Comparative Literature
offerings divide into two categories: period courses, which examine the spirit and
intellectual continuity of an age reflected in the works of its major authors; and
thematic courses, which emphasize a literary theme, motif, genre, (e.g., novel, lyric,
drama, epic, picaresque), or mode (e.g., satire, allegory, symboHsm).

Requirements for Concentration

A. EULIT l(X)a and l(X)b in the first year of the concentration, taken in sequence.

B. Five semester courses in Comparative Literature, at least two from the Period
category and at least two from the Thematic category. The courses selected from the
first category must span any two consecutive literary periods (e.g., 101 and 102, 102 and
103, etc.), although the student is not required to complete them in their historical
order. Period courses fall in the 101-107 range; the final digit identifies the period, as
follows: (1) Antiquity, (2) Middle Ages, (3) Renaissance, (4) 17th Century, (5) 18th
Century, (6) 19th Century, (7) 20th Century.

C. Three upper level semester courses in any one of the following foreign litera-
tures: French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Latin, Russian, Spanish.

D. All concentrators are required to complete the Senior Seminar, in one of the
following two ways: (1) EULIT 97a: Senior Essay; (2) EULIT 99: Senior Honors
Thesis. Departmental Honors candidates must elect the Thesis option and enroll in
EULIT 99 (which is a full year course), after having first obtained the consent of the
Area Head of Comparative Literature at the beginning of the senior year. Honors will
be awarded on the basis of cumulative excellence in all courses taken in the
concentration, including the Senior Seminar.

It is strongly recommended that concentrators (especially those who plan a graduate
career in Comparative Literature) begin a second foreign language.

In addition to the courses listed below, students should consult offerings in all foreign
literatures, English, Philosophy and History of Ideas, and Theater Arts.

The minimum requirement for concentration in Comparative Literature is eleven
semester courses: three in European Literature, five in Comparative Literature, and
three in any one Foreign Literature.
