Biology minors gain a broad knowledge of the systems and processes that allow for life. A minor in Biology is designed to support a major in a collateral field chosen by the student and recommended by the advisor.
Goes great with:
- Physics with Engineering Emphasis
- Physics with Life Science Emphasis
(From the 2011-13 Catalog)
A. All of the following:
Emphasis is placed upon photosynthesis and respiration, and physiological processes including nutrition, gas exchange, transportation and regulation of body fluids. It is an investigation of the structure and function of both plants and animals and intended as an introductory overview. Three lecture/discussion periods are held weekly.
Offered fall semester. Concurrent registration in B111 is required.
These laboratory studies complement the concepts presented in B110. Investigations including physiological and molecular relationships and interactions are the basis for the course. The lab meets for one three-hour session each week.
Offered fall semester. Concurrent registration in B110 is required.
Emphasis is placed on plant and animal phyla, organs and organ systems of both plants and animals. Three lecture/discussion periods are held weekly.
Offered spring semester. Concurrent registration in B121 is required.
Laboratory studies complementing B120 include plant and animal hormones and reproduction, bacterial techniques, and phylogenetic investigations. The lab meets for one three-hour session each week. Offered spring semester.
Concurrent registration in B120 is required.
B. Thirteen additional biology elective credits, which may not include courses specifically designed for non-science majors.
