Department of Biological, Geological, and Environmental Sciences


Course Number Changes

Effective Fall Semester, 2000, the official course numbers of many BIO and GEO courses changed. In addition, new courses under the EVS designation appeared for the first time. The following table lists both the old and new codes of all courses offered by the Department of BGES.

Note: No entry for a course in the "Old Code" column signifies that its code did not change.

To move to a specific location in the table click one of following:
200-level Biology courses
