I'm doing my bachelors of science in chemistry, but I may want to do graduate work in molecular biology instead of chemistry. Would a BS in chemistry and maybe 15-20 hours of undergrad biology be good enough to qualify me for graduate programs in biology? I will have a biology minor when I graduate, but not a full BA or BS. I 'may' be able to pull off a BS in biology, but it'll be hard to do and I doubt it'll happen. Do they offer remedial biology classes for individuals like me who do not have all the pre-reqs for a graduate program? The BS in biology at IU requires 33 hours of biology, the BA requires 28. The BS in microbiology requires 42 and the BA requires 31. I think the BS in biology would be my best bet if I wanted to go full ass and do another bachelors as the BA degrees also require about 15 hours of art & social electives that I wouldn't ahve to take for a science degree. At the end of fall semester I will have completed 12 hours of biology and I have 3 semesters (and maybe summer of 2007) to go before I graduate so I can get up to 25-30ish hours of biology w/o problem. Also, would a degree in biology (not microbiology) allow a person into molecular biology graduate programs? What if I just take molecular biology classes (virology, fungi, cellular biology, immunology) as part of my minor is that the best idea? I keep researching PhD programs in biology and they usually don't say 'requires a BA or BS in biology to apply' like it does for chemistry doctoral programs. What they usually say is 'proficiency in chemistry, biology, calculus and physics'. I will have all of these things if I do a BS in chemistry and do 20 hours of biology, so maybe just a minor in biology will be enough to qualify me.
