The Biological Sciences Program at the University of Maryland offers a degree program in Physiology and Neurobiology (PHNB) at the Universities at Shady Grove. The Biological Sciences Program at Shady Grove offers the Advanced Program courses normally taken in the junior and senior years.
All Biological Sciences majors complete a common sequence of introductory and supporting courses referred to as the Basic Program. For students matriculating at the Universities at Shady Grove most of these introductory and supporting courses are taken at a community college or at another four-year institution prior to admission to the Biological Sciences Program. Depending on space available, students who matriculated at College Park may transfer to the Shady Grove Program in their junior year, where they may complete the Advanced Program in Physiology and Neurobiology.
