You’ll sharpen your analytical, problem-solving, scientific reasoning, critical thinking, communication and laboratory skills as you take 23 credit hours toward a biology minor in conjunction with a different bachelor’s degree major. Biology minors develop a strong foundation in biology by exploring cell biology, genetics, chemistry, molecular biology, evolutionary theory, scientific methodology, research techniques and more. The coursework encourages students to sharpen their analytical, problem-solving, scientific reasoning, critical thinking, communication, and laboratory skills. Students have the opportunity to gain relevant research experience on campus and develop mentoring relationships with full-time faculty who are experienced in cutting-edge research. A human cadaver laboratory is available to supplement the learning experience for those students interested in the healthcare field.
