Biology minor

Students who are majoring in another program may choose to take a biology minor in addition to their primary course of study. A minor normally consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours, 6 of which must be taken at the 300/400 level. Each department must approve the student and curriculum to be used in the completion of each minor for the Office of the Registrar to verify at the point of graduation. Here are the course requirements.
