Biological Sciences Curriculum Change Video
The Department of Biological Sciences with the University of Alaska Anchorage is undergoing major curriculum changes for the academic year 2015-2016.
It is imperative for our students to understand the curriculum changes and how they will affect degree completion under their current catalog year. Please view this video of an information session held on November 24, 2014, to learn more about the new Biological Sciences degree program and what you should do to prepare for the changes.
If you are a Biological Sciences major and you need to plan for the curriculum change, please see one of our academic advisors.
