Minor Programs - Biology, Molecular Biology, Environmental Studies

 

Minor in Biology


Requirements for a minor in biology are met by taking 24 semester hours of courses in biology, including BIO 201, 202, 203, and one course in each of the following concentrations:

  • Cell Biology and Genetics: BIO 301 or 302 or 303 or 304
  • Evolution, Form and Function: BIO 334 or 337 or 338, 363 or both 335 and 336
  • Biodiversity and Ecology: BIO 360 or 361

No grade lower than a C- may be used to satisfy any requirement for the minor.

 

 

Minor in Molecular Biology


Requirements for a minor in molecular biology are met by taking 24 semester hours in six specific courses; BIO 201, 202, 203, 302, 303, and 401 or 403.

No grade lower than a C- may be used to satisfy any requirement for the minor.

 

 

Minor in Environmental Studies


The environmental studies minor focuses on the interface between humans and their environment. Environmental issues are typically complex and multi-faceted, requiring an understanding of the natural sciences, social sciences, art, humanities - thereby emphasizing a true liberal arts education. This minor offers students an approach to studying one of the most important issues of our time by emphasizing the inherent multidisciplinary nature of environmental issues. Program Coordinator: Dr. Helen Boylan (Chemistry).

Requirements:  Students must complete 24 semester hours of required and elective courses.

Required courses are ENV 101 and ENV 401. These are considered the two core courses of the minor.

Electives are divided into two groups and students must complete a total of four elective courses. At least two of the elective courses must be from Group I.

  • Group I: ECO 270, ES 160, PS 242
  • Group II: ART 105, BIO 361, BIO 360/ES 360, CHE 375, ENG 131, PHI 230

No grade lower than a C- may be used to satisfy any requirement for the minor.
