Next: Chemistry (CHE) Up: Courses of Instruction Previous: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Major: A minimum of 13 courses (12 courses if CHE 161 is taken), including at least 10 courses in Biology, eight of which must be at or above the 200 level; also CHE 121-122 (or 161), and 225 (Chemical Principles I, II, or Accelerated General Chemistry, and Organic Chemistry I).
The courses in Biology must include the seven core courses listed below and at least one course from each of the other three groupings:
Appropriate supporting work in chemistry, physics, and mathematics is also strongly recommended.
Teaching Major: Identical to the general major except BIO 485 is not required. If the student's program permits, however, BIO 485 is strongly recommended. In addition to the foregoing requirements for the subject major, prospective teachers must also apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program (preferably at the start of their sophomore year) and complete a second major in Secondary Education described under Education.
Minor: A minimum of seven course credits (six courses if CHE 161 is taken), which include BIO 141, 142 and CHE 121-122 (or 161). Students may elect either of the following two ways to complete the minor: (1) CHE 225, BIO 205, and BIO 315; or (2) BIO 321 plus two additional upper-level elective courses in Biology. Environmental Studies majors may receive a minor in Biology by completing the first track, or by completing the second track only if the two upper-level Biology courses completed are courses not counted toward the Environmental Studies major.
Concentration: Students should consult with the Department concerning programs leading to graduate work in zoology, botany, or the health sciences; to high school teaching; to admission to schools of medicine and dentistry; and to various careers in the biological sciences.
