Biology – Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Careers for biologists exist in academic, clinical, industrial, and governmental settings. Students with a minor in biology are well prepared to pursue opportunities in the workforce or in graduate or professional schools. Many students get advanced degrees in medicine or biology, while others seek employment in the health, pharmaceutical, or biotechnological professions. Students must complete 18 credits above the introductory level for a minor in biology. Of these 18 credits, a minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum.

Interested students should apply to the minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.

For more information on applying for and completing a minor, please see Minors in the Academics  section of this catalog.

10 required hours that may be taken from any category or categories.
