Biology Minor

Biology includes a wide range of related disciplines that encompass the study of life from the molecular level, through cells, tissues and organisms, to populations and ecosystems. Biology is not only of intrinsic interest but has applications in areas from health and medicine to the management of agriculture and biodiversity. Students can study theoretical, laboratory or field based approaches to biology. A biology minor complements a range of other disciplines such as environmental science, psychology, chemistry or earth science by allowing students to choose courses most relevant to their interests.
