A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to a solid understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a major.
Depending on interests and career goals, some students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest.
The BA in Biology requires you to have a minor (option A) or a Topical Focus (option B).
Note that you cannot have a minor that has the same name as your major. For example, you cannot have a major in Animal Science and a minor in Animal sciences, even if you are pairing the minor with a different major.
The Biology Department offers three minors:
- Minor in Biology
- Minor in Microbiology
- Minor in Neuroscience
