** This is a draft of proposed courses for Spring 2016. This list will be updated once the actual list of courses is posted on BU Brain on Friday, October 23rd. Pre-registration for undergraduate students begins on Monday, November 2nd.

The following seminars can count toward Junior/Senior Seminar Core Requirement.

Course #









PSYC 473F   Drug Abuse/Addict-Neurochem   Werner       4 credits
PSYC 473H   Human Neuropsychology   Donovick       4 credits
PSYC 473J          Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders   Diaz       4 credits      
PSYC 473K   Affective Neuroscience   Miskovic     4 credits
PSYC 473N   Psychobio of Sex & Reproduction   Cameron       4 credits

  • *This is a 4-credit requirement:
    ONE approved Integrative Neuroscience or Biology Seminar (4 credits) or TWO approved Biology 480 Seminars (2 credits each)
  • BIOL 451 Current Topics in EvoS (formerly 480S) is counted toward the IN major only once. It is possible to take the course in more than one semester, but the credits will not fulfill additional IN requirements.
  • Biology courses can be taken for Type A or B credit (depending on faculty member) and Psychology seminars can count in the elective section but they cannot count as both a seminar and an elective. Ex. A student could take PSYC 473K for their approved seminar and BIOl 480B to count towards upper level and Type A electives. See advisor for clarification as to how courses will count and to process exceptions so that courses will appear on DARS or DW audits.

Biology Course Restrictions: None

***Courses cross-listed under the BCHM (Biochemistry) will be restricted to CHEM and BCHM majors only. The BIOL versions of these courses will not be restricted.

But there reasons you might not be able to register:

  • You don't have the pre-reqs for the course (check pre-reqs before registration starts - they are listed in the course description).
  • There is another restriction you don't meet (check the RST column for restrictions, click on the R to see what they actually are).
