Bulletin Page Content

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.

To declare the Composite Science minor, talk to your academic advisor or visit the Arts and Sciences  Student Academic Services Center in Alpha Hall South, room 345.

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.
