BIOLOGY MINOR A total of 24 credits of biology is required for a minor. Completion of the following courses will satisfy the requirements for a minor in biology: BIOL 122-123, BIOL 124-125, BIOL 126-127, and 12 credits above BIOL 200. The 12 credits of biology electives should be geared toward a specific area of interest (e.g., ecology, microbiology, organismal biology). THE NEXT STEP In order to complete the Next Step Program to earn a B.S. degree in Biology, the following courses must be transferred into Gannon or completed in addition to the required courses for the Next Step Program in Biology. Other courses (i.e. chemistry, physics or upper level courses in biology) may also be transferred and used to meet the requirements of the program. 4 Molecular & Cellular Biology/BIOL 122-123 4 Animal Form & Function/BIOL 124-125 6 Mathematics/MATH 111,112,135,140,141,213* 39-40 General Electives† 53-54 JUNIOR 4 Ecosystem Biology & Evolution/ BIOL 126-127 4 General Chemistry I/CHEM 111-112 4 Biology Electives (200-level or higher)# 3 Foundations of Theology/LTHE 101 15
