Major in Integrative Physiology 2013-2014

The Integrative Physiology department reserves the right to change major requirements at any time. Please check with the Integrative Physiology department or the CU Boulder catalog for the most current listing of requirements. You are subject to the requirements in effect at the time you formally declare your major as an Arts & Sciences degree seeking student.

Students must complete the general requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences and the required courses listed below.
