                                                                                    College of Arts and Sciences



                                                                  The Academic Minor
    Many departments have designed academic minors for the convenience of undergraduate students.

    A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to considerable knowledge and understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a
    major. Some employers consider minors desirable, and the corresponding major requirements at the University may stipulate a minor. Some
    students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest. Students interested
    in pursuing an academic minor should contact their college dean’s office and the department responsible for the minor program for guidance and
    advising.

    Please note that undergraduate students can only complete a minor in addition to and as a complement to a major. The University does
    not award stand-alone minors.




                                                           Minor in Biological Sciences
                                         A minimum of 21 semester hours is required for the minor in biological
                                         sciences, to be distributed as follows:
