Another option for the Content Area 3 lab science requirement is:
GSCI 1010 (3 credit course) and 1051 (1 credit lab) combined.
1010. Dinosaurs, Extinctions, and Environmental Catastrophes
Three credits. Not open for credit to students who have passed GSCI 1050, 1051, 1055, or 1070. Students who complete both GSCI 1010 and GSCI 1052 may request that GSCI 1010 be converted to a CA 3 laboratory course.
