The requirements for a minor in biology are five biology courses, which must include two from the core courses (BIOL 260 - Genetics, BIOL 265 - Cell Biology, BIOL 270 - Biodiversity and Evolution, BIOL 285 - Ecology).

At least two of the biology courses must have a lab, which may include BIOL 255, a 2-credit lab methods course. BIOL 255 may only apply as an accompaniment to the five courses of the minor.

Only one course may be below 200.
