Biology Minor

A minor in biology is designed to give you a basic exposure to biology without requiring the in-depth courses of the major. Requirements for the minor are flexible so that you can choose an “interest area.” For example, majoring in physical education with an interest in parks and recreation you will be able to obtain a biology minor with an environmental science concentration, or if you are a chemistry major with an interest in working for a pharmaceutical company you can obtain a biology minor with a molecular biology concentration.
