The Biology minor provides a broad introduction to the biological sciences for students majoring in other disciplines. A variety of courses are available to help students whose long-term goals would be enhanced by knowledge of biology (for example, careers or graduate study in fields such as biotechnology, biophysics, anthropology, clinical psychology, public policy, healthcare administration, or genetic counseling). Courses used to fulfill requirements for the minor should be selected with the help of the Biology minor advisor or another advisor in the department.

The minor in Biology requires the completion of six courses (minimum of 21 credits).
