Minor in Biology (18 semester hours)

The Department of Biology offers a minor in biology. The Minor in Biology requirements include the following:

  1. Required prerequisite: BIO 110 (must be passed with a C- or better), or BIO 100 (must be passed with a grade of A or A-). These courses are prerequisites and must be completed before admission to the minor. The grades in these courses are not used in calculating the GPA in the minor and do not count toward the 18 semester hours required.
  2. Students must complete 18 credits at the 200 level or higher for the minor. At least three credits must be in addition to the biology courses required by the student's major. A grade of C- or better is required in all courses.
  3. To graduate with a minor in Biology, students must maintain a GPA of 2.00 in the minor courses.
