Students majoring in Biology can choose to add a minor within the department (i.e. Environmental Studies) and must take an additional 8 hours in biology courses beyond the requirements of the minor.
Students in majors outside of the Department of Biological and Allied Health Sciences may complete two minors from within the department by taking all required courses for each of the minors plus 8 additional hours of biology courses.
