Before being admitted to the minor, students must have successfully completed the following courses: BOT 121 or BIO 114, SS 121, MATH 118 or MATH 161.

At least one-half of the units must be at the 300-400 level. Generally, courses required for the student's major degree cannot be counted toward the minor, except that courses selected in the required core may count in both the major and minor programs. This and other course exceptions must be approved by the minor coordinator. As a guideline, students should take at least 20 units from outside their major degree program.
