The Physiology and Medical Sciences Minor

If you would like to add the Physiology and Medical Sciences minor, email your request to a Physiology advisor.

  • Note: Admission into the minor does not guarantee entry into Physiology courses as course registration depends on meeting course pre-requisites and course availability.
  • Students selecting the Physiology and Medical Sciences minor must earn a grade of “C” or better in PSIO 201 and PSIO 202 (Human Anatomy & Physiology I and II) before taking upper-division PSIO courses.
  • Minor GPA: 2.000 minimum. Nine upper division units are required for this minor.
  • Double dipping policy requires the minor to have unique units that are not used to satisfy any other major or minor. Contact your advisor for guidance if your major requires PSIO 201 & 202.
