Minor in Biological Sciences Fall 07 Requirements

Effective for incoming freshmen Fall 2007 and for incoming transfer students Fall 2009.

The Minor consists of 23-24 semester hours (a minimum of 15 credits must be taken at Rowan University). In keeping with the revised policy of the B.S. Biology program, any Biology grade below a "C" will not count within the Minor.

Course requirements:

BIOL 01.104 Biology 1: Diversity, Evolution, and Adaptation

BIOL 01.106 Biology 2: Concepts in Genetics

BIOL 01.203 Biology 3: Introduction to Cell Biology

BIOL 01.204 Biology 4: Global Ecology

Two (2) additional Biology courses, both of which must be 300-level and above.

Students enrolled in the Minor prior to the implementation date will have the option to be either “grandfathered” (permitting them to complete the Minor under the old requirements) or to complete the Minor under the new system outlined here.

Students who transfer to Rowan having already completed the traditional Biology I and II will be enrolled in a special version of Biology 3, BIOL 01.202 Biology 3T: Biological Skills and Methods. This is a course designed to focus on the learning skills and hands-on science skills to which the Rowan students had been exposed in Rowan’s Biology 1 and Biology 2. After successful completion of this special course for such transfer students, those students will proceed to Biology 4. Transfer courses other than Biology I and II will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
