Biology B.A.

Effective for the Fall 2018 semester, Stony Brook University is now offering a B.A. in Biology degree.  Completion of the major in Biology B.A. requires a minimum of 55 credits in life science coursework, along with an 18-24 credit non-overlapping, approved, College of Arts and Sciences minor.  The minor must have no more than a 3 credit overlap with the life science requirements for the Biology B.A. The Biology B.A. provides an option for students interested in careers that build on foundational knowledge in the life sciences, but who also have strong interests in areas such as the fine arts, humanities, or social sciences.

Find out more about the B.A. below, including the checklist and a video tutorial on how to fill out a checklist.
