An alternate route for meeting the requirement for History 207 or 208, History 107 or Political Science 225 is to take the appropriate History department proficiency examina­ tion. The examinations are given twice a year in Sep­ tember and February. For those students, who pass the examination, upper division History courses will be substi­ tuted in lieu of History 207 or 208, History 107 and Political Science 225. Appropriate upper division coursework is determined in consultation with the History department.

BIOS 252 Human Anatomy and BIOS 281 Physio logy are for nursing, human biology and physical education majors only CHEM 112 is fo r nursing majors. For those students who need to complete one or two units remaining in their math/ science requi rement, Computer Science (CSCI) 104 or Physical Science (PHSC) 105 is acceptable. Exception, those in the Bachelor of Music program.

General Education Course Substitutions While the general education requirement will normally be met from the cou rses specified in the catalog, in exceptional cases where students have the appropriate prerequisites and where the depart­ ment in which the course is taught determines that the intentions of the general education requirement would be satisfied, students may request permission to substitute an upper division class for the lower division course specified in the catalog. Students are to secure writ­ ten approval for such a substitution prior to taking the class. Electives Normally a student has considerable freedom in the choice of electives in addition to the biblical studies and theology, general education and major requirements. However, in addition to the note given at the end of the biblica l studies and theology requirements, the non-music major is limited to a maximum of eight units of credit in applied music (including ensembles) and the non-physical educa­ tion major is limited to eight units of credit in physical education or skill courses.

Example: A student who has taken beginning volleyball once may take it at the intermediate/ advanced level once. In addition, two different activities are required to fulfill the four activity general activity requirement. Students 21 at the time of entrance to Biola are exempt from the physical education requirement. Science I Mathematics 8 units Eight units are required in science and/or mathematical sciences. Computer Science courses may not be used to fulfill the Science/ Mathematics requirement. A minimum of three units in math and three units in science is required. Biology 100 with 110 and Physical
