  • Course description

    The Biology Department of Lewis University will be recognized as one of the premier pre-professional, allied health, and environmental science departments in the Midwest. We will also endeavor to provide high quality general education experiences for all Lewis University students in addition to exemplary support courses for multiple programs across the colleges.

    As a department, we will build upon our current strengths and expertise and, when combined with the addition of highly qualified faculty and the expansion of our facilities, our department will grow to meet the demands and expectations that our institution's unique environment, development, and potential will provide.

    With the prospective development of a wetlands preserve on campus, coupled with the natural resources at our doorstep, the Lewis University Environmental Science majors will be distinguished from all other regional programs. Graduates of our department will be recognized as excellent scholars and practitioners and we will constantly strive to enhance the placement of our graduates in high-profile, well-respected institutions.


    Total Credit Hours: 128
    Major Credit Hours: 78-80

    A grade of C or better must be earned in a prerequisite course in order to advance to the next course in the sequence.

    Biology majors may take a Biology class only two times. If a student has not achieved a minimum of a C after the second attempt, the student may not repeat the class.

    The Biology Department will award 3 hours of credit for our general education class 02-100 (Introduction to Biology) when students have received a score of 4 or 5 on AP tests. We do not award any credit for major classes based on AP scores.
