Biophysics Minor

Effective Winter 2016


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


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


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


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.
