Biological Sciences Minor
Requirements for the Biological Sciences Minor
A minor in Biological Sciences (five courses) consists of the following:
1. Two Introductory Courses
- One course in Cellular and Molecular Biology (BISC 110, BISC 110P, BISC 112, BISC 112Y, BISC 116)
- One course in Organismal Biology (BISC 111, BISC 111T, BISC 113, BISC 113Y)
2. Two 200-level courses, each of which must be in a different group as described in the first paragraph above under major requirements
Four of the five courses for a minor must be taken at Wellesley. Chemistry is recommended.
Double-Counted Biological Sciences Course
The College requires that no course is double-counted between two majors or between a major and a minor. When any Biological Sciences course is counted toward a non-Biological Sciences major, the students need to make up for the course by taking an additional Biological Sciences course towards their Biological Sciences minor. The elective course must be approved by the advisor.
