Plans of Study

SIE course sections can be used to design a curriculum appropriate for science-related professional or graduate schools. The plans of study, below, assumes a student starts fall semester and takes all courses here at UMD. In addition, the plans of study are designed to assist students to prepare for the application cycle and associated admission tests.

The exact courses and credits that a student takes depends on the intended career path. Individual plans may vary and students are not obligated to take every recommended course. Students should use this as a guide to develop their individual plan with the program director.

All pre-requisites must be satisfied. A course cannot be taken in the same semester as the pre-requisite. For information on how to determine course pre-requisites, see Course List, below.

Please note: Information on registration, financial and academic deadlines, and more may be found in the grey box at the top of this page. Registration for SIE course sections is restricted to program-admitted students.

Course Sections

  • SIE courses sections may be found on Testudo (Schedule of Classes). Use Search FilterScience in the Evening."
  • Occasionally SIE offers additional courses sections to those listed below. Topics may include cancer or infectious diseases offered in seminar format to address higher level reading of research literature and critical thinking. Be alert to emails from SIE.

Course Syllabus

  • Posted on Testudo (Schedule of Classes) alongside the offered course, the Syllabus Repository is a PDF from a previous session.
  • The course instructor posts the updated course syllabus via ELMS (Electronic Learning Management System). To learn more, see Accessing Online Content.
  • Only admitted UMD students have access to the repository or ELMS.
