I need this class for my major, but I'm going to ask them if I can substitute something else, like Immunology with lab instead.
How many of you plan on taking Genetics? Will it help in the future? What else would be a good upper division class to take instead of it?


(This is not a "is this class required thread" so don't bother).

I don't think learning something is ever "not useful", so yes, I think it has it's benefits. I will be taking Genetics. But I have also taken Immunology. You can not expand your knowledge too much.

Yes, I've taken Genetics before. I personally enjoyed the class (taken for my major), and I guess I can say it can be somewhat useful in the future. It never hurts to expand your knowledge. :)

The only use I had for genetics was for the PCAT. At the time, I took Genetics because my school required Genetics to graduate.

I imagine Genetics would help you with Immunology in Pharmacy school.
