Every Biology major is required to declare a concentration area. Each area requires semester hours to be selected from a set of designated courses.

All Biology majors are assigned a professional advisor. The student is responsible for seeking the assistance of the advisor. This catalog is not intended to provide the detail necessary for self-advising.
