Biology majors should take the minor in physical science in order to fulfill co-requisites. Students who plan to enter a graduate or professional school should consider taking organic chemistry, biochemistry, physics and two semesters of calculus, as well as carefull selection of biology electives depending on future plans.
Bachelor of Arts degree programs require a minor and a year of a foreign language.
All biology majors are required to complete a portfolio review (biology knapsack) each year. Successful completion of this review during the sophmore year will enable students to formally apply for acceptance into the major.
