Program Requirements

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


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).
