The Department of Biology offers a minor in Biology. Following completion of two required core classes, students can select from many departmental course offerings (provided that course prerequisites are met). Students desiring a minor will take a minimum of 23 hours distributed as follows:

  1. Required courses - BIO 111 and BIO 112 (or transfer equivalent), both with required laboratory, 8 hours total
  2. A minimum of 15 additional hours with a grade of C or better. Students cannot apply BIO 101 or 102 (or the transfer equivalent) to meet minor requirements. 

NOTE: A minor must have at least 12 semester hours of courses that are not used to fulfill the requirements of the student's major(s) or any other minor of the student.
