Interdisciplinary Majors

Interdisciplinary majors allow students to combine interests in two different disciplines. This enables students to individualize their curriculum and helps to prepare them for our interdisciplinary world. Disciplines recently combined with biology in this way include communications, economics, forensic studies, history, mathematics, philosophy, sociology, Spanish, theology, psychology, and writing. It is possible, however, to combine biology with many other disciplines. The general biology requirements for an interdisciplinary major (unless specified by targeted programs) are as follows:

  • BL118/BL119, BL121/BL126, BL201/BL202
  • Three biology electives (200-level or higher).
  • Two biology electives (300-level or higher).
  • Two courses from CH, CS, MA/ST, or PH. These courses must be those typically by biology majors.
