Biological Sciences at Northwestern 

The Biological Sciences major educates undergraduates in foundations of modern molecular biological sciences, allows students to train to become experts in all specialized areas within modern biological sciences, and prepares them for future careers in biology-related sectors. 

Please remember that your Biological Sciences Major Advisor is here to help you navigate degree requirements, and questions can be sent to our office email as well.

Transfer credits for in-person courses of the same number may be used towards a major in Biological Sciences. No distance learning or online courses, from Northwestern or elsewhere, may be used towards the major.
