Majors & Minors

The Program in Biology offers eight different majors. They range in specialization from cell and molecular biology to ecology and evolution. If you are just beginning your career at U-M, it is not necessary to decide on a specific major right away. You may need to take several biology courses before knowing what aspect of the biological sciences interests you the most. However, if you are interested in earning a degree in the biological sciences, it is strongly recommended that you begin the prerequisite courses as soon as you enter U-M and that you see a major advisor early in your academic career (e.g., end of the freshman or beginning of the sophomore year) to begin a course plan.
