Q. Psych 6 has no prerequisites, but Bio 34 has two prerequisites (Bio 11 and Bio 12). Why would I want to take Bio 34 instead of Psych 6?
Related question: Why would I want to take the two courseBio 11/Bio 12 sequenceto satisfy the cellular/molecular neuroscience requirement instead of the one course–Psych 46?
A. If you are interested in cellular and molecular neuroscienceand are thinking of takingupper level Biology courses then taking Bio 11 and 12 would be a good choice, sincethese two courses are prerequisites for many upper level Biology classes. In addition, ifyou are pre-med, Medical Schools currently recommend having at least two courses inBiology that contain laboratories. Takingthe Bio 12 and 13 sequence (in lieu of Psych46 for the cellular/molecular neuroscience requirement) would fulfill the premedrecommendations, since both these Bio courses have laboratories (Psych 46 does notcontain a laboratory). However, Psych46 has more content directly related toneuroscience than the Bio 12/13 sequence.
