Entry through the ISC program

The first year ISC sequence (ISC 231, 232, 233, 234) offers an alternative to the combination of MOL 214 or 215 (biology elective), COS 126 (a quantitative thinking elective), SML 201 - Introduction to Data Science and PHY 101-102 (required courses) (or the equivalent). ISC 235 - Genetics and Genomics offers an alternative to MOL 342 Genetics (and will thus count as a “biology” elective).
