Biology Electives

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.

 

Biology Depth Electives

Depth electives allow you to gain deeper understanding in specific biological areas of your choice. Depth electives must have a "BIOL" prefix (or be cross-listed with a BIOL prefix). Biology experiential learning courses (BIOL 4695, 4697, 4699) cannot count toward Depth electives.

 

Biology Breadth Electives

Breadth electives add a wider base of experience and knowledge to your Biology degree. Breadth electives can be selected from other BIOL 3XXX and higher courses, Biology experiential learning courses (BIOL 4695, 4697, 4699, and VIP courses taught by a faculty member from the School of Biological Sciences), and a list of approved courses offered in other Schools below. For Business Option students, a maximum of 6 credits of Business Option electives can be applied to the 9 breadth credits. For Research Option students, a maximum of 2 credits of LMC 4701 and 4702 can be applied to the 9 breadth credits. A maximum of 6 credits can be applied to the 9 breadth credits from each of BIOL 4695, 4697, 4699, or VIP courses.
