As freshmen, Zoology majors work with advisors in the College of Agriculture, Life and Physical Sciences Advisement Office. Freshmen are encouraged to enroll in courses of the Life Science First-Year Curriculum, especially BIOL 200 Introductory Biology (fall and spring semesters).

Sophomores and first-semester transfer students should enroll in ZOOL 215 Sophomore Seminar, in which they will receive an orientation to the Zoology major, declare a degree/track, and be assigned a faculty mentor in their areas of interest.

Students work with their faculty mentors to understand career options, develop their academic objectives, and carry out their senior projects.
