Biophysics Minor

Effective Winter 2016

Exclusions:

Not open to those electing a major in the Program in Biophysics.

Advising

The Program in Biophysics currently offers a B.S. degree in Biophysics and a minor in Biophysics. Students interested in either option are strongly encouraged to schedule an advising appointment by contacting Student Services at biophysics@umich.edu.

Prerequisites

None for the minor per se, although individual courses elected to meet the requirements of the minor may have course prerequisites.

Requirements

Minimum Credits: 15

The minor requires at least 15 credits from the following courses:

  • PHYSICS 340 or CHEM 210
  • BIOLOGY 305 or MCDB 310 or CHEM 351
  • BIOPHYS 370 or 417, or PHYSICS 370 or 417, or CHEM 370 or 417
  • BIOPHYS 290 or 430 or 440, or PHYSICS 290 or 430, or CHEM 440
  • BIOPHYS 450 or PHYSICS 450

Students wishing to pursue this option are strongly encouraged to talk to an advisor because the LSA rules for double-counting courses towards a major and minor apply.
