The Biology+Business Program combines the strengths of the Biosciences Division in the College of Letters and Science and the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley. Students complete all academic requirements for both degrees, and all policies of each school are enforced.
In addition, students will take a freshman introductory course (MCB/UGBA C95B) and complete a senior capstone project.

*While Haas accepts AP credit for mathematics, MCB requires two semesters of calculus or higher-level math. If you are interested in applying AP credit to your course planning and taking a higher-level math, please email the program advisor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that Haas does not accept the Math 10 series.
