Minor in Biology

Learn about the plants, animals and organisms around us – down to the cellular level – following the scientific method.

Starting at the cellular level, students learn about biological principles, models and theories – and then apply them to topics ranging from genetics to taxonomy to ecology.

The fascinating organisms around us come alive in rich detail as students develop the skills to conduct research about them, evaluate their results and describe their findings.

Immersing themselves in the scientific method, students become proficient in the laboratory skills, vocabulary and critical thinking abilities to work in biological research or other related fields.
