Molecular Biology Minor


To complete a minor in molecular biology, a minimum of 24 credits must be taken in biology. The student can expect to take three academic years to complete the minor because many upper level biology courses are offered on a two-year cycle.

Note: Prerequisites for Molecular Biology and Laboratory include General and Organic Chemistry (CHEM1001, CHEM1002, CHEM1003, CHEM1004, CHEM2015 or permission of instructor).
