What kind of courses should one generally take first year of college?
In general, if you’re thinking science, it’s nice to have a balance of math, science, and some type of general education (english/foreign language/humanities/social science etc.) This gives you time to spread out what you’re doing through out college (with the geneds and science) along with allowing you the opportunity to adjust to the transition of college life without bombarding you with ALL science.
Check with your department and/or advisor
Also those electives are typically just that, electives. Usually means that they count for your total number of courses needed for graduation but may not fulfill a requirement. Again, check with the dept. or advisor to make sure.
It’s really important you talk to an Academic Advisor and it’s essentially their job to suggest what classes you should take. However, depending on the advisor, they may screw you over ( like mine did ) or be really helpful.
As an example, my first AA put me in Math 111 despite me not being super great in Math, not planning to pursue math at all and only needing to fill one math requirement. So I dropped 111 and took 105 which was the lowest Math class I could take and still fulfill the requirement, and it was VERY easy. So really, keep your eyes peeled for classes like that.
I guess what I’m really trying to convey here is the importance of talking to an advisor.
But definitely check your school.. and make sure you get your pre-requisites for any bio courses you are gonna need in the future done now.. Otherwise they may end up holding you back. GOOD LUCK>
Two solids (A math and History or Poly Sci)
A Major (Science or biology course)
That’s a pretty heavy work load.
I recommend all of them.
