Astrobiology Minor (Multidisciplinary)


The Biology, Biochemistry and Biophysics, Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Earth and Environmental Sciences, and Physics Departments participate in a multidisciplinary minor in Astrobiology for students majoring in these or other disciplines. 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. A further two courses outside the major field of study are also required, selected from the following:

Program Requirements


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