Minor in Biology

To fulfill the requirements for a Biology minor, students must complete the following courses with a GPA of 2.00 or higher. A minimum of 12 units of the biology units applied toward the minor must be earned at Towson University, with at least 6 of those units at the upper level.

Courses required for the Biology Minor
BIOL 200INTRODUCTION TO CELLULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS [LECTURE]3
BIOL 200LINTRODUCTION TO CELLULAR BIOLOGY AND GENETICS [LAB]1
BIOL 202INTRODUCTION TO ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION4
BIOL 309GENETICS4
Additional Courses
An additional 12 units must be chosen from courses approved for any concentration in the Biology major. At least 6 of the 12 additional units must be upper-level. The remaining 6 may be lower-level (below 300) or upper-level. When selecting course work, please review the catalog descriptions carefully. Some Biology electives may have additional prerequisites. These prerequisites must be taken, but they may count toward your total units. Courses whose catalog descriptions indicate that they may not be taken for credit for the Biology major (or minor) will not count toward the Biology minor. Please consult with a representative of the Department of Biological Sciences for more information.12
