Coursework taken within the area of biological sciences can be applied to only one major.
Students seeking a second baccalaureate in biological sciences typically complete the same course requirements as do students seeking the first baccalaureate. These courses include the major area of study requirements, the additional requirements, the upper-level writing-intensive course, and the calculus competency. Students must meet with the school director to finalize specific degree requirements during the first semester of seeking the second baccalaureate.
A student’s choice of degree program and curriculum should be determined in consultation with an advisor.
Summer coursework at the Gulf Coast Research Laboratory (GCRL) is strongly recommended for undergraduate students.
Licensure Requirements: This program is designed to meet the licensure requirements of the State of Mississippi Department of Education. Students who plan to complete this program should consult the Teacher Education Program Requirements for program admission, progression, and teacher candidacy requirements.
