Program Description

The Biology Minor is designed for students pursuing major degrees outside of the Department of Biological Sciences. Students minoring in biology can supplement their major and strengthen their biological knowledge that can be used in their fields. To complete the minor in biology, the student is required to complete 18 SH: 8 SH of Foundation courses (several of these courses can be taken as part of the general education (GE) requirements), 7 SH of Breadth courses, and 3 SH of Depth courses. A minimum grade of C- or better is required in all courses. Requirements are below.

Foundation Courses (8 semester hours)
