PostSubject: So....school?   July 3rd 2011, 4:25 am

Alright, my boyfriend and I have been talking about going to school (or, for him, going back to school). I'm wanting to study Herpetology, and I think he's wanting to do Electrical Engineering.

Anyone have any idea of a good school for these? I really don't want to go to MTSU (I don't have a reason really as to why not, I just don't want to lol). We are considering looking throughout TN, or possibly outside of TN and making a move. Haven't really gone into an in-dept conversation about it, but...yeah.

So, would love some advice on this. Thanks!

UT has a good program but it has alot that you have to do. here is what it looks like



Arts and Sciences
Biological Sciences Major — Prerequisites to all Concentrations
Select:
BIOL 111 - General Botany
BIOL 112 - General Botany
or

BIOL 130 - Biodiversity
Complete:
BIOL 140 - Organization and Function of the Cell
BIOL 240 - General Genetics
BIOL 250 - General Ecology
CHEM 120 - General Chemistry I
CHEM 130 - General Chemistry II
PHYS 221 - Elements of Physics
PHYS 222 - Elements of Physics
Select one sequence:
MATH 141 - Calculus I
MATH 142 - Calculus II
or

MATH 151 - Mathematics for the Life Sciences I
MATH 152 - Mathematics for the Life Sciences II
EEB Concentration
The concentration consists of 33 hours.

I. Chemistry
Complete:
CHEM 350 - Organic Chemistry I


Note: While not required, CHEM 360-CHEM 369 is recommended for students that plan to pursue medical professions and the following disciplines within ecology and evolutionary biology: physiological ecology, chemical ecology, environmental toxicology and molecular evolution and systematics. CHEM 360-CHEM 369 can be applied to the ecology and evolutionary biology upper-division requirements and are listed under the physiology/chemical ecology category below.



II. Quantitative Requirement
A. Statistics
STAT 201 - Introduction to Statistics
or

STAT 251 - Probability and Statistics for Scientists and Engineers
B. Select one course (note prerequisites in parentheses):
MATH 231 - Differential Equations I (MATH 141-MATH 142)
MATH 251 - Matrix Algebra I (MATH 141-MATH 142)
MATH 405 - Models in Biology (MATH 141-MATH 142 or MATH 151-MATH 152)
STAT 320 - Regression Modeling
STAT 330 - Experimental Methods


Note: MATH 141-MATH 142 or MATH 151-MATH 152 can be used to satisfy ecology and evolutionary biology requirements. However, MATH 141-MATH 142 is recommended for students with a strong interest in quantitative ecology and is prerequisite to several courses that satisfy the ecology and evolutionary biology quantitative requirement.



III. Upper-Division Courses
A total of 24 hours is required at the 300 level or above. Fifteen of these hours must be EEB courses, (EEB 304, EEB 305, EEB 413 are not allowed for credit in the concentration) including one course from each of the following categories. Other courses, related to the student’s determined interests, may be approved by petition to the department and the division. Courses applied to the major must include at least 4 hours at the 400-level and one laboratory or field course. * indicates courses with lab or field component.

A. Evolution (select one):
EEB 426 - Plant-Animal Interactions
EEB 460 - Evolution
EEB 462 - Paleoecology
EEB 495 - Evolutionary Ecology
B. Ecology (select one):
EEB 421 - Community Ecology
EEB 433 - Plant Ecology *
EEB 470 - Aquatic Ecology *
EEB 484 - Conservation Biology
MICR 470 - Microbial Ecology
C. Organismal Biology (select one):
EEB 330 - Field Botany
EEB 351 - Biodiversity of Fungi *
EEB 414 - Plant Anatomy
EEB 450 - Comparative Animal Behavior
EEB 459 - Comparative Animal Behavior Laboratory *
EEB 461 - Special Topics in Organismal Biology *
EEB 473 - Herpetology *
EEB 474 - Ichthyology *
D. Physiology/Chemical Ecology (select one):
BCMB 310 - Physiological Chemistry
BCMB 321 - Introductory Plant Physiology
BCMB 415 - Foundations in Neurobiology
BCMB 416 - Neurobiology Laboratory *
BCMB 419 - Cellular and Comparative Biochemistry Laboratory *
BCMB 440 - General Physiology
CHEM 360 - Organic Chemistry II
CHEM 369 - Organic Chemistry Laboratory *
EEB 463 - Plant Ecophysiology *
MICR 310 - Introduction to Microbiology
MICR 319 - Introductory Microbiology Laboratory *
IV. Remaining Hours
any other upper-division EEB courses or

ANSC 340 - Animal Breeding and Genetics
