The B.A. in Biology provides a high degree of flexibility, providing a foundation in biology with the option to choose courses in other disciplines. Students may want to use this opportunity to obtain further training in a sub-discipline of biology, such as a career in scientific illustration or technical writing by double majoring in biology and art, or biology and English or journalism. Majors in biology and business administration would be excellent preparation to enter hospital administration or the business sector of pharmaceuticals.

A B.A. in Biology is ideal for students who wish to pursue a liberal arts education or a second major, along with training in biology. Many B.A. Biology majors choose a minor or a second major in the arts, humanities, or social sciences to prepare for careers that require interdisciplinary training. B.A. Biology is an ideal second major for students pursuing a degree in secondary education. The curriculum exposes students to the breadth of biological knowledge, builds skills in evaluation and communication of scientific information, and promotes awareness of the impacts of science on humans and the environment.

Students selecting a major in biology must complete at least 30 credits (maximum 45 credits) in the major including the following courses: BIO 101 or 101H/103 and 102/104 (8), and CMB 201 or 211 (4). They must also complete at least three credits from each of the first three lists (A, B, and C) below. The balance of 30 credits may be selected from lists A-D. Students in this major must complete two courses in chemistry with laboratories, and one course in MTH or STA numbered 103 or above. BIO 105, 181G and 498 are not for major credit.

List A (plant biology): BIO 308, 310, 311, 321, 323, 332, 346, 365, 416. List B (animal biology): BIO 121, 201, 220, 221, 222, 223, 242, 244, 286, 300, 301, 302, 350, 354, 355, 366, 385, 388, 404, 412, 417, 419, 422, 425G, 444, 467. List C (integrative biology): BIO 228, 230G, 256G, 262, 263, 272, 282G, 320, 341, 345, 352, 353, 360, 388, 396, 437, 439, 440G, 452, 455, 457, 472, 480, 482G, 485. List D (other): CMB 242, 245, 320, 333, 334, 413, 414, 415, 416, 432, 435, 483; up to three credits of the following independent study or special topics courses: AFS 491, 492; AVS 491, 492; BIO 491, 492; CMB 491, 492; NRS 491, 492; PLS 491, 492.

Students must maintain a 2.00 grade point average in BIO and CMB courses used to meet the major requirements. A total of 120 credits is required of which 42 credits must be in courses numbered 300 or above.

In order to transfer from University College for Academic Success to the College of the Environment and Life Sciences as a Biology major (or be coded as such in the College of the Environment and Life Sciences), a student must have earned 30 credits including BIO 101 or 101H, 102, 103, 104 with grades of C or better.
