The undergraduate minor in biology requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in biology course work, including 12 s.h. in courses numbered 2000 or above offered by the Department of Biology at the University of Iowa or in approved Iowa Lakeside Laboratory courses. Students must maintain a cumulative g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. Students may not use transfer course work to count as courses numbered 2000 or above.

Either BIOL:2512 Fundamental Genetics or BIOL:2211 Genes, Genomes, and the Human Condition will count toward the minor, but not both. Good Genes Gone Bad: Genetic Disorders of Notable Celebrities (BIOL:2120) and Honors Research in Neuroscience (BIOL:4995) do not count toward the minor.

Students may count BIOL:3994 Introduction to Research (maximum of 3 s.h.) and BIOL:4897 Teaching Internship in Biology (maximum of 3 s.h.) only once toward the minor requirement.
