Requirements for a Minor in Biology
Courses required for the Biology Minor: BIOL 040 PO , BIOL 041E PO and BIOL 041C PO , CHEM 001A PO , (or CHEM 051 PO ) and two upper-division, laboratory or field, biology courses.
With permission from the department chair, a student may receive credit toward the minor for one upper-division course completed at another Claremont college or in a study abroad program. Upper-division biology courses taken to fulfill the requirement of any major cannot also be used for the biology minor.
The department recommends that students interested in pursuing a major or minor in biology take the courses listed below in the first year.
This first-year schedule is also desirable for students contemplating majors in molecular biology, neuroscience or biology/public policy analysis.
