College of Arts & Sciences - Biological Sciences Department

Under Department Mission, the second paragraph should read:

The degrees offered in the biological sciences are designed to prepare students for rewarding careers as scientists, educators, professionals, and global citizens. The department currently offers five baccalaureate programs (a BA in biology and a BS in biological sciences, each with associated emphases, a BS in chemistry, a BS in computational biology and a BS in exercise science) and three minor programs (biology, chemistry, and general science). We also offer individual courses satisfying the requirements for general education and special interest courses in environmental studies, education, and health science.

Special Requirements should read:

Science courses taken more than 10 years ago may not count as the prerequisite for certain advanced courses.

Transfer students must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours at Webster University within the Biological Sciences Department. This must include Research Methods (BIOL 4400 or CHEM 4400) and Senior Thesis (BIOL 4420, BIOL 4430, BIOL 4440 or CHEM 4430) for the appropriate majors. Transfer courses taken prior to enrollment at Webster University may be used to substitute for required courses if accepted by the chair.

No more than 6 credit hours of independent study courses may count toward the required biology hours. Coursework completed with a grade of “D” may not be counted toward the fulfillment of departmental requirements.
