Biology electives allow you to customize your biology degree to be specific to your biological area of interest using 21 hours of Biology elective credit. You can focus your Biology Electives in a particular concentration to earn a Biological Sciences Certificate. 12 "depth" credits must be courses with a “BIOL” prefix, excluding BIOL 4694-4699. Biology Elective courses that are cross-listed with other Schools are included in these 12 depth credits. The remaining 9 "breadth" credits can be selected from other BIOL 3XXX and higher courses, Biology experiential learning courses (BIOL 4695, 4697, 4699), and a list of approved courses offered in other Schools (see below). All biology electives must be taken for a letter grade.
Always refer to the Undergraduate Handbook specific to your catalog year (the year you entered the Biology major) for information, rules, and regulations specific to your Biology degree requirements, including regulations related to Biology electives.
