Biology Minor

A minor in biology enables students to demonstrate a substantial and coordinated subsidiary expertise in biological sciences. The curriculum provides a theoretical foundation balanced with practical applications. Students gain an understanding of the process of science, as well as its universal applicability to society.

The minor in biology requires a minimum of 18 semester hours of course work. Students take two semesters (8 credits) of the entry-level courses.

BIOL minors will complete an additional 10 semester hours of any BIOL electives at or above the 2000 level. These electives must be selected after consultation with a minors' advisor in the Biology and Chemistry Department
