Coursework for a minor in Biology

The biology minor is a broad minor focusing on the various aspects of biological sciences.  Students completing a minor in biology should acquire a basic knowledge of the biological sciences and become familiar with the scientific method and its applications in research.

Two prerequisite courses are required before you begin the biology minor. 

BIOL 1010/1011  Principles of Biology I and laboratory (can be used as Core)

BIOL 1020/1021  Principles of Biology II and laboratory (can be used as Core)

Students should check the prerequisite requirements for each course they plan to take.  Some courses require prerequisite courses.
