Policy for Biology Department concerning double majors and minors involving Biology


If you choose to double major with Biology plus one of the interdepartmental majors involving Biology such as Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Neuroscience, or Environmental Science, or a major of your own design only one course may be overlapped.

If you choose to double major with two of the interdepartmental majors involving Biology (Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Neuroscience, Environmental Science or a major of your own design) only one course may be overlapped.

The Biology Departments further stipulates that in the case of any two minors involving biology and/or combinations of one of the interdepartmental minors (e.g. Public Health, Animal Behavior, Environmental Studies etc) each one may overlap with the major by a single course and the same course may not be overlapped in two minors.

NOTE: Several members of the Biology Department do not recommend that you take a proliferation of closely related majors and minors involving Biology. It confers little or no advantage in the job market or graduate school. A better strategy is to take courses important to your future plans and then to present them on your resume as “Relevant Course Work.”

Please also see the college policy regarding sharing courses between majors and minors.
