Astrobiology Minor


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

Program Requirements


To complete this minor, students must take a minimum of 16 credits of course work in this field. These courses include ASTR 4510 and ISCI 4500, four credits each, and two semesters of the one-credit course ISCI 4510. Two additional courses outside the major field of study must be selected from the following:

  • BCBP 4860 - Protein and Nucleic Acid Structure

Additional Information


The requirement that the two selected courses must be outside the major field of study is reduced to one in the case of a double major, provided both majors are in primary relevant areas of study (i.e., biology, chemistry, geology, and physics).
