The study of life: evolution, structure, function, information flow, pathways and biological systems.

The Biology minor is open to all majors and provides exposure to fundamental areas of biology. Students select from microbiology, botany and animal-based classes based on their desired career path. The curriculum appeals to majors in agricultural and biological sciences, as well as those in the social sciences and humanities who seek an understanding of the significance of biological changes and want to apply this knowledge in their chosen field.
