In COSAM, designation of your “major” may be confusing at first because of differing categories, options, and concentrations within majors. The following points should help clear up the confusion:
(1)The three year program that constitutes the exact pre-requisites for the Harrison School of Pharmacy (HSOP) here at Auburn University;
(2)The four year Biomedical Science degree with a Pre-Pharmacy concentration. This curriculum includes all 84 hours of the pre-requisites as well as 38 additional hours to earn the Biomedical Science degree.
The “mainline” majors are those that are not set up to provide pre-requisites for a professional school. Students many times will wish to continue in the major in graduate school. These majors are classified by departments:
Botany, Cellular/Molecular concentration, B.S.
Botany, Evolution/Ecology concentration, B.S.
Marine Biology, B.S.
Molecular Biology, B.S.
Zoology, General, B.S.
Zoology, Cellular Biology/Physiology concentration, B.S.
Zoology, Conservation/Biodiversity concentration, B.S.
Zoology, Ecology/Evolution/Behavior concentration, B.S.
Laboratory Technology, B.S.
Medical Technology. B.S.
Mathematics and Statistics:
Applied Math, B.S.
Applied Math, Actuarial concentration, B.S.
Applied Math, Discrete concentration, B.S.
If you came into COSAM undecided, you will need to declare a major or concentration by the end of your freshman year. For help, check out the various resources in COSAM and elsewhere on campus.
If you decided on your major or concentration before coming to college, you need to reaffirm this choice by the second semester of your freshman year.
