Cell and Molecular Biology Minor

Coordinator: Lisa Morey, PhD

The Cell and Molecular minor is open to students majoring in biology or chemistry. For students seeking employment at the BS level, a Departmental “Letter of Proficiency in Laboratory Skills” may be requested upon completion of the minor. This letter requires enrollment in either BIO 300 or BIO 301.

Students must select six courses from the list below. At least four of the six courses must be taken with a laboratory.
