Why minor in Biology?
A minor in biology is an excellent opportunity for students in health sciences, mathematics, chemistry, psychology, or other areas to take additional upper-level courses in biology. The biology minor will supplement your major with additional skills to make you more marketable to industry. In addition, graduate schools will appreciate the additional course-work in advanced biological topics, and the experiences and knowledge gained from those classes will improve your success in professional schools.
The biology minor consists of 15 to 18 hours of BIOL courses, with no more than 8 hours being lower division (1000 and 2000 level) courses.
