Biology Degree - General Option

The general biology option is designed for students who wish to prepare for fields requiring a general background in biology or to follow preprofessional curricula for which general preparation in biology is required or recommended. The major requires additional coursework in chemistry and mathematics as well as coursework to complete a minor in any discipline. This option is particularly popular with students who have other interests besides the sciences for study.  Some of our more popular minors include psychology, geography, earth systems sustainability and business.
