Biology Minor for Mathematics Majors

biomin_mathmaj

Note that Biol 100A can substitute for the GE Area B 1 course (biology with lab, specifically Biol 155, 156 or Micr 151), and Math 206 will substitute for the Math 102 requirement. Among the electives, Biol 300, Biol 340, Biol 360 (with adviser approval), and Biol 408 can double count as electives in related fields for the BA degree in Mathematics (up to 8 units). For the BS degree in Mathematics, Biol 100B and Biol 100C can double count as lower division electives.

For the 12 units upper division electives, the following courses are recommended (prerequisites beyond the required courses are listed in parentheses)

Recommended course sequences:
