    Prerequisite: BIONB 2220, BIOMG 3320, FGSS 2010, LGBT 2290 or permission of instructor. For NBB concentration: this course may be used toward the additional 7 credit requirement, but does not qualify as an advanced course. If a student enrolls in a non-CALS section of a cross-listed course, it will not automatically be counted as CALS credits in their degree progress. However, we can still give them CALS credit for the class, they just need to ask us to code it.
