The minor is a part of the Department of Biology, a program within the College of Science and Mathematics.

The biology minor offers students a way to explore primary concepts in biology from molecules to ecosystems through four core biology classes with their associated labs.  Main topics include cell and molecular biology, organismal biology, biodiversity, genetics, ecology, and evolution. Students also choose one or more upper-level level courses in biology within their area of interest.  The biology minor is an ideal minor for any student interested in the biological sciences.  The biology minor also pairs well with other science and social science majors, or pre-professional health minors.

The requirement for a minor in biology is 19-20 credit hours. The biology minor is not available to biotechnology majors.
