NATURAL SCIENCES FOR NON-MAJORS/MINOR

Minor Credit Hours: 20

Minors in Natural Sciences may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for our general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.

Biology, Chemistry, and Physics majors may not minor in Natural Sciences.

03-105 Introductory Organic and Biochemistry (3)
03-110 General Chemistry I (4)
03-111 General Chemistry I Lab (1)
or any higher numbered chemistry course
17-200 College Physics I (4)
17-201 College Physics I Lab (1)
