Biology majors are required to complete a Supplemental Area of Concentration (SAC). Those majors pursuing a pre-professional track (pre-medical, pre-dental, or pre-veterinary medicine) must have a SAC in physical sciences (including inorganic/organic chemistry and physics) since many biology elective courses presume an understanding of basic organic chemistry and most professional and graduate schools require 16 hours of chemistry, eight hours of physics, and mathematics through calculus. Biology majors not on a pre-professional track may have a SAC in any subject; however, the physical sciences SAC is recommended.
