Minors

Female student in class

Are you interested in adding a minor in the life sciences to your degree? Undergraduate TWU students with a passion for the natural sciences now have several options to choose from.

For details about course requirements for each minor, visit our undergraduate minors catalog page.

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.

Neuroscience minor

Our neuroscience minor is a cross-disciplinary minor for students who are interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of the human brain. This minor pairs well with any major and is presented in collaboration with the TWU Division of Psychology & Philosophy.

Scientific illustration minor

Do you want to combine a love of science with a passion for art? Our scientific illustration minor is an interdisciplinary minor that will develop your visual communication skills and show you how biology and the visual arts can work in harmony.

Pre-med minor

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

Our pre-med minor is designed to support pre-health students who are majoring in a discipline outside of the natural sciences. This minor 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).
