(NEW) Pre-med minor

Are you pre-med? Not sure which classes you need for medical school? We've got you covered.

Our new pre-med minor is designed to support pre-health students who are majoring in a discipline outside of the natural sciences. This major includes standard prerequisite coursework for medical school, and it will also offer a strong foundation for students to prepare for the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT).

Required courses will be available Fall 2020.

Biology minor

A minor in biology requires 18 semester credit hours, six of which must be advanced.

General science minor

The minor in general science also requires 18 hours, six of which must be advanced. These hours must be divided among three of the following: chemistry, biology, physics and science courses. If the major is biology or chemistry, the hours must be divided between two of the remaining three.
