Duke logo

The Biology Department faculty voted to certify completion of the major for seniors graduating in Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 if they have a completed at least one upper-level lab course (beyond Bio 203L) or approved Research Independent Study, rather than a minimum of two as specified in the Bulletin of Undergraduate Instruction.

Please note that this revision is only for the lab requirement - all other requirements for the major are still in force. Note also that it applies only to this year’s seniors, as an accommodation to the circumstances of the Fall. Finally, note that this only applies to the requirements of the Biology major at Duke. Please consult with your HPA advisor if you have questions regarding health professions requirements.
