Whether you are interested in pursuing an undergraduate Biology major or minor, or you are a Biology major or minor already, find out about the many resources available to you — from opportunities for involvement, to help with applying to your major; from career information to help with applying to graduate school.

Involvement Opportunities for Students

Applying to Your Major/Minor

Admission to one of the Biology majors is ordinarily a two-step process. First, apply to the Biology Core program (BioCORE). Once you have established an appropriate academic record in the BioCORE program, you may apply to the biology major of your choice through Banner. This brief video explains how to apply through Banner.

Applications for a minor in Biology are also completed through Banner, and are considered individually by the Biology faculty. The normal minimum requirement for admission to the Biology minor will be a GPA of 2.0 in biology courses taken at SPU.
