Students may choose to enhance their major with a minor degree in biology. To do so, a student must pass a minimum of six biology courses, including two required courses at the 100 level and at least three 4-credit laboratory courses. All courses must be passed with a grade of “C” or better.

The following courses are recommended as biology electives or free electives within the BS program for students interested in the pre-medical/pre-dental track:

BI201 Comparative Vertebrate Anatomy
BI220 Introductory Microbiology
BI301 Histology -or- BI302 Embryology
BI304 Physiology
BI306 Cell Biology
BI330 Immunology
BI405 Ecology
CH324 Biochemistry
PY211 Introduction to Psychology
PY212 Abnormal Psychology

A core curriculum of science, mathematics, and English courses ensures that, as a biology major, you’ll develop key analytical and communication skills. Rounding out the major, four free biology electives and seven free electives empower you to design a program that meets specific career goals and develop one or more minors and/or double majors. A special pre-medical committee oversees students on a Pre-medical/Pre-dental track and helps place them in programs following graduation.
