Biology Major, B.S.


Electives:


Biology courses selected from the 2000-, 3000-, and 4000-level series, and approved by faculty advisors in the Biology Department, must be completed to bring the total of biology courses approved for the major to 40 semester hours.

Electives 11-16

At least 21 semester hours of the major:


(including genetics, ecology and upper-division electives) must be from the 3000- and 4000-level courses of the Biology Department.

Total (minimum) 40

Required Non-Biology Courses:


One year of college general chemistry with lab, one semester of upper-division organic chemistry with lab, one semester of upper-division biochemistry, and one year of mathematics starting with MTH 1110 or above, are requisites for the bachelor of science major in biology. CHE 3110 (Organic Chemistry II) and CHE 3130 (Organic Chemistry II Laboratory) may be substituted for the upper division biochemistry requirement with permission of a Biology Department academic advisor.
