The Biology major is an interdepartmental program designed for students interested in obtaining a broad education in biological sciences. It enables students to combine courses in biology, botany, zoology, physiology, and other biological sciences to meet the requirements of the major. On completion of the core requirements for the major, specific courses selected to complete the major may vary according to students' interests and are worked out by consultations between student and adviser. The requirements for a bachelor's degree are outlined in the Biology section of the Bulletin.

The degree requirement checklists are provided here as general guidelines. All students must refer to their own WyoWeb CAPP reports to determine their individual requirements, which depend upon matriculation date.
The Biology Program offers a Biology Minor for interested students majoring in disciplines other than Biology, Botany, Physiology, or Zoology. Elective credit hours used towards the Biology Minor must be in courses not counted towards a student's major. A grade of "C" or better is required in all courses applied towards the minor. At least 25% of the credit hours for the Biology Minor must be earned in upper division courses. Click Here for required and elective courses.
