The minor in biology is a good companion to other science-related degrees. It requires a biology core of 4 courses including biology, zoology, botany and genetics, as well as elective courses in biology and supplemental chemistry course work.
This is not a degree program, but is a good supplement to a variety of science-related degrees.
