Minor in Biology
A Biology minor, which is available for students majoring in other fields, offers a general exposure that is beneficial in some areas of environmental science, recreation, conservation, and comparable fields.
A total of 32-36 units is required, including 19-24 units in lower division courses and 12 units in upper division electives.
Successful completion of the minor requires a C (2.0) overall grade point average for required courses taken in residence and for all required courses. At least 8 units of upper division course work that fulfills requirements of the minor must be taken in residence at Cal State L.A. (not to include courses graded CR/NC).
