Biology-Health Sciences, BS


Degree Requirements

The minimum graduation requirement is 181 credit hours of prescribed coursework. Students must meet the general education requirements, as stated elsewhere in this catalog, and satisfactorily complete the courses listed in this curriculum to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology-Health Sciences. Biology-Health Sciences students must complete every science course with a minimum grade of "C" and must maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.5 in lower division science courses to advance to upper-division science courses in the major.

Because the prerequisite requirements and recommended courses for entry into health professions and graduate schools differ, some upper-division courses may be substituted for others, with approval of your academic advisor.
