4.1.9 Double Major in the Department of Biological Sciences

Programs with two major fields in the Department of Biological Sciences may be completed in the following manner:

  • The minimum requirements for both major fields must be fulfilled.
  • For all programs the following courses will be counted towards both majors if they are allowed as a major field option: Biology 241, 243, 311, 313, 315, 331 and 371 and Biochemistry 393 and 443.
  • For all major fields in the Department of Biological Sciences, no course beyond those specified above will be counted towards both major fields. If a course constitutes a requirement in both major fields, it will be counted towards only one and a substitution must be made to fulfill the requirements of the other major field.
  • It is not possible to combine the Biological Sciences major with any other program offered by the Department into a Double-Major program.

For further details consult the Office of Student Affairs, Department of Biological Sciences.
