Students wishing to complete a minor in biological sciences must take a minimum of 19 hours of biology courses, at least 9 of which must be completed at SIUE, with a grade point average of 2.0 or higher in all biology courses attempted at SIUE. Due to the sequencing of courses, students are advised that it will normally take at least two years to complete the minor.
Courses must include the following: BIOL 150, 151, and 220 (A grade of C or better is required in each of these courses before proceeding to the next course).
The remaining hours may be completed with any course in biological sciences except 111, 491, 493 or 494. All the courses in this group have a chemistry prerequisite. Please consult the biology advisor for details.
