Biology Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Departments and Programs

A minor in biology provides an opportunity to gain conceptual understanding and practical experience across a broad range of biological ideas through a structured sequence of courses. It is particularly appropriate for students planning to work in disciplines that interface with biology, such as mathematical modeling of biological processes, biological psychology, biomedical policy or ethics, biological (physical) anthropology, management in the pharmaceutical industry and many others. Students preparing for health-science careers but choosing a major outside the life sciences may also be interested in a biology minor.

For additional programs and courses in this department, see Biology .


At least one 300-level course in an appropriate specialty area is recommended for students planning to pursue biology-related career areas.
