Many students find that a minor in biological sciences is a useful addition to another major like chemistry, nursing, kinesiology, physics, or engineering. In particular, students interested in biotechnology careers will find that combinations such as chemistry and biology, or engineering and biology, are especially valued by employers.
Perhaps you just have a passion for biology but don’t intend to pursue a scientific career. We also have students majoring in the arts, different languages, and other humanities-based programs who choose a biology minor simply to learn more and explore their varied interests.
No matter your major, you can pursue your passion for biology with a minor – it can be completed in just five to seven classes.
