23 credit hours required. Closed to Biology majors.
The biology minor provides an opportunity for non-major students to gain experience in the field of biology. The minor should be attractive to a variety of majors. In addition to chemistry, geology and physics majors, art majors interested in biological illustration, English majors interested in editing biological journals or psychology majors interested in behavior might choose to minor in biology. Given the diversity of the field, flexibility is the key to an effective biology minor, since it will allow interested students to gain experience in one of the subdisciplines.
A minor should be registered with the Department of Biology prior to completion of two elective courses, in order to ensure proper advisement. Biology minors will be assigned advisers from the biology faculty.
All courses are 3 credits unless noted. Credits are divided as follows:
|BIOL 151||General Biology I (4 credits)|
|BIOL 152||General Biology II (4 credits)|
|Must be selected from biology major offerings.
The following courses cannot be counted among the 15 elective hours:
|BIOL 475||Biology Lab Techniques (1 credit)
|BIOL 485||Research in Biology (1-3 credits)
|BIOL 480||Advanced Topics in Biology (1-3 credits)
