INTRODUCTORY COURSES IN LIFE SCIENCES
The Department offers majors in: Biochemistry Biology Botany Environmental & Natural Resource Management Zoology
Students can pursue double majors in Biology or between any two majors within Life Sciences, except Biology & Botany, and Biology & Zoology. Students can also select a single major in Life Sciences with another major from any other Department within the Faculty or outside the Faculty provided the student has the Prerequisites.
LIST OF MINORS OFFERED IN THE DEPARTMENT OF LIFE SCIENCES
Students wishing to elect minors offered from the Department of Life Sciences must have passed the Prerequisites for the courses selected.
Minors are offered in all disciplines in Life Sciences (Biochem- istry, Biology, Botany, Environmental & Natural Resource Management and Zoology). A minor is defined as any sixteen (16) credits from the core of the discipline. In addition, minors are being offered in Biotechnology , Marine Biology, and Envi- ronmental Biology.
