The Biology Minor

Biology is the study of all living things and the way that life is structured, functions, and evolves. Some of today's most important social issues — fuel alternatives, genetically modified foods/organisms, global climate change, and stem cell research — can best be studied and understood by those with backgrounds in biology. If you don't have time to major in the field but love learning about life, consider a minor in Biology.

The Environmental Science Minor

The Environmental Science minor is an individually designed minor that lets you receive a broad background both in the sciences and in the application of scientific principles to environmental problems. Interdisciplinary programs are increasingly popular as we realize the benefits of multiple perspectives and methods to advance understanding and improve solutions.
