Courses in BOLD are used to calculate the major GPA for students finishing the BMSC degree option. Harrison School of Pharmacy (HSOP) will use all courses in calculating GPAs for admission purposes.
Options for courses labeled CORE are in the Auburn University Bulletin (www.auburn.edu/bulletin) under Core Curriculum.

1 A CORE HUMANITIES may be substituted to meet entrance requirements to Harrison School of Pharmacy. Students who elect a class other than COMM 1000 will NOT meet the requirements for the Biomedical Sciences degree.

2 Students must complete a two-course sequence in either HIST or LIT (for example, World History 1 and 2, or American Lit 1 and 2). For complete HIST and LIT sequence options, see the Bulletin.

3 If a LITE sequence is chosen, this course must be a CORE SOC SCI. If a HIST sequence is chosen, this course must be a CORE HUMANITIES.

4 BCHE 5180 may be automatically substituted for BCHE 3200. However, BCHM 5190 must also be taken as a BMSC elective if applying to Harrison School of Pharmacy.
