The courses offered in the department are grouped into three course areas embodying the main themes of molecules and cells (GCMB), organismal biology (POB), and ecology and evolution (EEB). These three course areas and their included courses are listed below. While some course content could fulfill 2 different areas, each course can satisfy only a single requirement. Also included in the list are three courses offered by other departments that have been approved to serve as biology electives; these three courses count as 200-level biology courses.
Please note: A biology major’s major gpa is calculated using only the grades from BIOL courses.
