BIOL 1107 and BIOL 1107L taken to fulfill Area D core requirements cannot be applied for the minor requirement.

One 2000-level course (4 hours) appropriate for student's upper level biology course interest.

Additional upper division (3000/4000, 9-10 hours) courses except BIOL 3000, independent study, internship, research, or the Capstone courses.

Upper-level courses in a student's major curriculum cannot be used toward the biology minor.  Please note that some of the upper level courses may have specific prerequisites that must be taken prior to signing up for the course.  Courses taken as prerequisites that are not part of the minor and do not count toward a student's major curriculum will count in the elective area.
