Biology Minor

Minoring in Biology gives you the ability to become knowledgeable in the study of science as well as getting hands-on opportunities with what you could do in the field after graduation.

The Biology minor has a civic learning aspect in which you learn how biology is involved in modern society. Biology enforces different thinking styles along with getting you involved with other studies such as mathematics, cell biology, ecology, and more.

You will become acquainted with the formulas and theories behind your course work and how to apply them during the research process. You will be able to look into different studies such as genetics, evolution, biostatistics, ecology, and others.
