The Department of Biology must advise students on minor and elective requirements. Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science (Geoscience), and Math minors are strongly recommended. Chemistry is the required minor for many post-baccalaureate, graduate, and health professions programs. If a student chooses a different or additional minor, this degree may require more than 120 semester hours. Students may select single or multiple area minor.

*Many graduate programs and health professions schools require one semester of calculus and one semester of math statistics or biometry.

**Many graduate programs and health professions schools require two semesters of physics 1401 and 1402.
