Minor in Related Science

If a minor is required in your degree program, at least 9 (lower and/or upper-division) hours of courses in the minor must be completed at the University.

Related Sciences Minor

The Related Sciences minor offers two tracks: a Medical/Molecular Sciences track, and an Ecosystems Sciences track. Students must choose one track: consult with your Academic Advisor about the best choice for your major and career. The Medical/Molecular Science Track is designed for students seeking to enhance their preparation in organic and biochemistry, such as pre-med students. The Ecosystems/Evolution Track emphasizes the study of terrestrial ecosystems.
