Minor in Biology (24 or 25 credits)


The Minor in Biology may be taken in conjunction with any primary program in the Faculty of Science (other than programs offered by the Department of Biology).


Students are advised to consult the Undergraduate Advisor in Biology as early as possible (preferably during their first year), in order to plan their course selection. (Nancy Nelson, Rm W3/25, Stewart Biology Building, (514) 398-4109)

Six credits of overlap are usually allowed between the Minor and the main program.
