The minor requires a total of six courses amounting to 6 course credits. No more than two courses required for the major, or which satisfy the common course of study, may count toward the minor.

Students interested in taking courses with a prerequisite (*) should plan appropriately to fulfill the requirements. Students interested in the minor should discuss their plans with the chair of the Health, Life Sciences, and Society Program. Credit for courses that are not already on the list of approved courses requires a petition to the Health, Life Sciences, and Society Program and the Academic Progress Committee. In addition to course work, students interested in the minor are encouraged to participate in interdisciplinary research opportunities.

Please see the list of courses to assist in your planning.
