Life Sciences and Agriculture Guide

The following is the academic advising information for the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA).

Choosing First-Semester Courses

  • A sample selection of courses is listed below for each major. In most majors, there is an opportunity for choosing one or more courses that satisfy the university’s general education requirement, called the Discovery Program.
  • A semester course load usually consists of four 4-credit courses and possibly a 1-credit seminar.
  • If you plan to take French or Spanish, take the French/Spanish Placement Test before June orientation. Your advisor will receive the results of your test.
  • First-year students usually take courses numbered in the 400s and 500s.
  • Students interested in health professions (pre-medical, pre-dental, etc.) career should review the suggested courses by health profession. UNH has no pre-med major. The Pre-Health Advising Office provides support throughout the process of preparing for health profession school from advising on the courses that should be taken to helping navigate through the complex steps of the application process.
