Molecular Biology Minor Student/Advisor Worksheet

Core Requirements:

  Grade point average (2.0 minimum required)

  Biochemistry (CHM 332 or CHM 432)

  Cell Biology (MBI 201 or BIO 203)

  Molecular Biology (MBI 365 or BIO 444)

Molecular Biology Laboratory Experience:

Students must either complete a molecular biology laboratory course or complete two credits of directed research in molecular biology. Students doing directed research in molecular biology should have their proposed research experience evaluated by their departmental representative at the time they initiate their research and must have formal approval from their departmental representative at least one semester prior to graduation.

  BIO/CHM/MBI 424, BIO 464, CHM 438, or MBI 465

  -or- Two credits of directed research in molecular biology

Department Distribution:

Select one approved course in each of the three departments


  Chemistry and Biochemistry
