Biology (Minor)

Biology Minor Requirements

Requirements for the biology minor include BIOL 111 and 112; and four additional biology courses (at least 12 credits), with or without associated lab. Of these courses, two must be at the 200 level and two at the 300 level. At least three of the six required courses (including one course at the 300 level) must be taken at UMass Boston. Providing that all biology courses for the minor are taken at UMass Boston, two such courses may be selected from within those biology courses to overlap and be used in satisfaction of the student's major program, but only one of which can be at the upper (300) level. Only one course for the minor can be taken pass/fail, provided all six courses are taken at UMass Boston. The overall GPA for all courses taken to meet the biology minor requirement must be at least 2.0.
