Biology Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study (A-Z)

The Biology Minor provides students with a deeper understanding of the living world around them as well as the workings of their own cells. Biology Lab and Field courses are both required so that students develop a wide range of laboratory and practical skill sets. The Lab Sciences courses represent the most common requirements for entrance to medical school or graduate school in a health field or biological program. Students are encouraged to pursue Research Assistant, Independent Study, and Volunteer opportunities with Flagler Biologists to obtain further research experience. Faculty have many ongoing research projects that utilize our pristine coastal location. Students are invited to participate in undergraduate research as soon as they arrive on campus.

Biology Minor (6 courses, 21-24 credits)

Required Courses (2 courses, 7-8 credits)


Math Requirement:

* See note 1 below.

Elective (2 courses from the following 2 categories, 14-16 credits)

Lab Sciences (Choose at least 2 courses from this category)

Field Sciences (Choose at least 2 courses from this category)


All coursework within the Biology Minor MUST BE additional and non-redundant for Coastal Environmental Science (CES) Majors and Environmental Science (ES) Minors. Therefore:

  1. CES Majors cannot use Calculus I to fulfill the Math requirement.
  2. CES Majors cannot use NAS 151 , NAS 236  , or NAS 203  to fulfill Biology Minor requirements.
  3. Students pursuing a Minor in both ES and Biology must choose 4 courses within the Lab and Field science categories above that are non-redundant to their ES elective choices.
