A student must take a minimum of 18 credit hours in courses with the designation BIOL, of which at least three credit hours must be taken as science electives (i.e. not be required by the major program) and at least six must be at the 3000- or 4000-level. If all the courses in a minor group are required by the major program, one additional course in the minor subject must be taken to satisfy the elective rule above. A cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 in the minor subject courses is required to successfully complete a minor program.
Suggested course groups for minors in Biology follow; students may choose to follow these course groups, or develop other course groups in consultation with the Faculty of Science academic advisor.
