Upper Division Biology Requirements


The biology major must include seven upper-division biology courses, at least five of which must include a laboratory component. To develop a broad background in biology and to experience major areas of study within the disciplines, biology majors are required to take both courses from Group I and at least one course from Groups II, III, and IV. The remainder of the seven required may come from any group.

Note


Lower-division requirements for split majors must be determined by consultation between the student and their advisor, and approved by the chairs of the departments involved.​ All split majors with biology as the predominant area must be arranged by petition. They must have a clear emphasis, a direction and show relatedness among the courses chosen. The specific upper-division courses selected for any split major must be arranged between the student and their advisor and be approved by the chairs of the departments involved.
