Suggested Papers for Zoology Majors

Only half the 360pts required for a BSc in Zoology are specified as Major Subject Requirements. The remaining 180pts can be taken from a wide variety of courses across the University. Below are some suggestions for 100 and 200-level papers but remember that you can include up to 90pts of non-Science papers in your BSc. You should check whether the papers you select have any prerequisites (in your Guide to Enrolment or here: http://www.otago.ac.nz/courses/subjects/)
