We also offer a MAJOR in Biology.


The Biology Minor is available for students who wish to major in another field of study but who also would like to explore the field of biology in depth and have those explorations recognized on their official record. Requirements for the minor are shown below.

Credit hours for each course are shown in parentheses.



A total of 24 hours with grades of “C-” or better in all courses is required. Courses other than those offered only as pass/no pass may not be taken on a pass/no pass basis for this minor.
