Biology Minor

Students seeking a Biology Minor are required to take a minimum of 24 semester hours, 3 of which must be upper division (3000-4000 level).  A grade of C- or better is required for each course in this program to count toward a minor.  Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required.

Students seeking a Biology Minor are required to take BIO1080, BIO1090, BIO1081, and BIO1091, and must complete at least one organismal course in general botany, human anatomy and physiology, general microbiology, or zoology.


Biology courses from the 2000-, 3000-, and 4000-level series, approved by the Department of Biology, must be completed to bring the total of biology courses approved for the minor to 24 semester hours. At least 3 of those semester hours must be upper division (3000- or 4000-level) to complete the minor. Students should seek assistance from a Biology department advisor or faculty member in selecting elective courses.
