Minor in Biology

Knowledge of biology is highly desirable as an adjunct to many other majors and professional fields. The minor in Biology will provide a concentration in modern biological sciences and is especially valuable to students who are considering graduate studies in biomechanics, biomedical engineering, or the management of a biologically-based company. It is also valuable to students in engineering majors who wish to broaden their education in the fields of environmental and ecological sciences. The minor in Biology provides a comprehensive, well-rounded education that allows students to be more competitive in the job market.
