Minor in General Biology

The Minor in Biology has been suspended for the 2017–2018 academic year because of impaction. No requests to declare the minor will be approved at this time. Students who have already declared a minor will be allowed to complete their course of study.

The minor requires a minimum of 23 units in biology, of which at least one-half must be upper division units.

All courses in the minor must be completed with letter grades (CR/NC is not acceptable). All course work used to satisfy the requirements of the minor must be completed with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.
