Microbiology Minor

Also available via Ecampus.

Administered by the Department of Microbiology under the School of Life Sciences.

The Microbiology minor is designed for students from other majors who have an additional interest in the field of microbiology. Student majoring in Biology (BI) or BioHealth Sciences (BHS) cannot declare the Microbiology minor. The courses used for the MB minor may be shared with other majors, options, and minors.

Some of the courses required for the Microbiology minor have additional prerequisites or grade requirements that are separate from the MB minor. At a minimum students will need to take BI 204/205/206 or BI 211/212/213.
