The program may be used to meet a set of specific requirements; for example, certification for teaching at the secondary school level. Students in this major are qualified for a wide array of positions working in the biological sciences.

Computer Requirement:


To satisfy the computer requirement for the B.A. or B.S. degree in biology or the B.S. degree in marine biology a student must successfully complete two of the following: BIO 335 , BIO 345 , BIO 366 , BIO 488 , and BIO 495  or BIOL 495 .

Oral Communication Requirement:


To satisfy the oral communication requirement for the B.A. or B.S. degree in biology or the B.S. degree in marine biology a student must successfully complete either BIO 495  or BIOL 495 .

Applied Learning Requirement:


To satisfy the applied learning requirement for the B.A. or B.S. degree in biology or the B.S. degree in marine biology a student must successfully complete one of the following: honors in any science department (BIO 499 , CHM 499 , EVS 499 , GLY 499 , MAT 499 , PSY 499 , PHY 499 ); directed individual study involving hands-on experience in any science department (BIO 491 , CHM 491 , EVS 491 , GLY 491 , MAT 491 , PSY 491 , PHY 491 ); BIO 498 , BIO 493 ; formal student teaching experience taken for UNCW credit (e.g. EDNL 406 , EDN 409 , EDN 411 ); BIO 480  or BIOL 495 .

Total: 59 hours


Additional Information:


A minimum of 30 hours chosen from BIO courses numbered above 299, at least two of which must be laboratory courses, and CHM 101 -CHM 102 . No more than 10 hours from BIO 480 , BIO 491 , BIO 493 , BIO 498 , and BIO 499  can be counted towards the 30 elective hours. BIO 335  and BIO 366  must be completed before taking other BIO courses at the 300 or 400 level. A “C” (2.00) or better average is required on all BIO courses above 299.
