The minor, administered by the School of Integrative Biology, is designed for students intending to have a career in a field other than biology, but for whom a background in biology is nevertheless complementary, e.g. law, technology, bioinformatics, business, scientific writing, and engineering. A minor in integrative biology provides an understanding of fundamental principles for one major subdiscipline of biology, whether this be organismal and evolutionary biology; behavior, ecology and the environment; or integrative anatomy, physiology, and molecular biology.
Students must contact an SIB advisor for acceptance into the minor.
