Biology Minor

From our cells to our genes to the environment, biology is the study of life. Study your specific interests from a diverse range of course offerings: marine biology, human anatomy and physiology, microbiology, genetics, environmental science, botany, parasitology, ecology, and biotechnology. Gain hands-on experience through lab projects.
