Anticipated Course Offerings

See the EMU course catalog for more information about each course.

This schedule is our best estimate of what courses we will offer over the next several years. It is subject to change based on instructor availability and other factors, but represents our plan at this time. When we are unable to offer a specific course, we will attempt to provide a suitable alternative. Please contact Dr. Marianne Laporte, Biology Department Head, if you have questions about these offerings. Courses marked FL will be offered at our Fish Lake Field Station
