Biology: A minimum of 18 graduation credits, including A BIO 110 or 120; A BIO 111 or 121; A BIO 212Y. Additional credits are selected from biology courses that yield biology credit toward the biology major. Courses that do NOT yield credit towards the major in biology are noted in the course description.
