A minimum grade of C (2.00) is required for any biology course that will serve as a prerequisite for another biology course.
At least 10 credits of the 48 non-senior synthesis biology course credits must be from 3000- or 4000-level courses (see Course Descriptions). Some of the course choices may require prerequisites beyond the minimal degree requirements. For a secondary endorsement in general science, 5 credits of earth science and 5 credits PHYS 1050 are required and will satisfy the science elective.
