In addition to being a fascinating field of study in its own right, the Biology major can be used to fulfill requirements for admission to medical, dental, veterinary, optometry or pharmacy schools, for wildlife biology certification by The Wildlife Society (see here). Students interested in pre-medicine or pre-dentistry should see here.

Specific Biology courses are required for every student majoring in Biology: BIOL 1020/BIOL 1021, BIOL 1022/BIOL 1023, BIOL 3005 and BIOL 4099 (12 hrs). Every Biology major must also take at least one course from each of the four Biology list electives A, B, C, and D (14 hrs, shown in the Biology Undergraduate Requirements section located here Biology, B.S.). A total of 45 credit hours in Biology are required. In addition to BIOL 3005 and the Biology list electives, 16 credit hours must be taken at the 3000-4000 level.

Transfer of Chemistry Credit from Other Universities to ULM

Chemistry course offerings at most universities are fairly standardized. To facilitate transfer from area universities, the ULM Chemistry Office maintains a list of chemistry course equivalencies.

A student whose ACT/SAT score places them in developmental English or math must successfully complete the course or courses within the first three semesters of enrollment at the University of Louisiana at Monroe to be eligible to maintain continued enrollment. A maximum of three attempts (including drop “W” attempts) will be allowed for the required course. Students who fail to meet this requirement during this time limit must successfully complete the developmental course at another university or community college before being eligible to return to ULM.
