Biology Minor

-

Students in other majors can choose to Minor in Biology in order to broaden their exposure to the sciences.  The minor must be declared by the semester preceding graduation.  Students should obtain and complete the Academic Minor Form and bring it to Karen Roach in Central King Building, Room 337F. Once the form is signed, students must return it to the Registrar's office.

-Tessy Thomas is a chemistry major minoring in biology.

Required Courses   

Currently the Minor in Biology requires 12 credits of core courses and 10 credits of elected concept cluster courses in Biology. Therefore, Biology Minors are required to complete a total of 22 credits minimum to fulfill the minor requirement. Declared minors should reference the proper time frame and follow the required associated courses as specified below.
