Combined major offered by the Department of Biology, College of Sciences and Technology and the Department of Chemistry, College of Sciences and Technology

104-109 credits

Biology Phase II status required for admission into 300- and 400-level biology courses for biology majors.

Introduction

Biology Phase II status required for admission into 300- and 400-level biology courses for biology majors.

This major must be accompanied by the professional preparation program in secondary education. See the Secondary Education  section of this catalog for program admission, completion, and teacher certification requirements.

As certification to teach high school now requires more than four years of study, advisement prior to or at the beginning of the third year is absolutely necessary to avoid lengthening the program.

Faculty Advisors: Deborah Donovan, Alejandro Acevedo-Gutiérrez

Admission and Declaration Process

The Biology Department has a two-step process for admission into our degree programs. Phase I students are students who have declared their intent to major in biology, and are in the process of completing the introductory biology and general chemistry series. Admission to Phase II is based on academic performance in the introductory courses. Students must have achieved an average grade of 2.9 or higher in their introductory biology and general chemistry courses before they can advance to Phase II and begin taking upper-division coursework.

Grade Requirements

Recommendation for teaching endorsement normally requires completion of the major with a grade point of 2.50 or better in the required major courses. Students must earn a grade of C (2.0) or better in the secondary education professional program and in all courses required for the endorsement.
