Biotechnology Minor - 28 units required

This minor consists of a core of required courses and approved elective courses. Advising for students in the Biotechnology Minor takes place in a student's major (if Biology) and includes selection of approved electives and preparation of an agreement form listing specific courses to satisfy the requirements for the minor. The Biotechnology Minor Form is available from the Advising Center in the College of Science and Mathematics (building 53, room 211).

The minor is open to any major except Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Biological Sciences with the Molecular and Cellular Biology concentration.
