Minor in Integrative Biology

A minor in Integrative Biology is ideal for students intending to have a career in a field other than biology, but for whom a background in biology is nevertheless complementary, e.g. law, technology, bioinformatics, business, scientific writing, and engineering.

Interested students should see an IB advisor to complete the minor declaration form. Students can visit during our Express Advising Hours, or you can make an appointment online or by visiting our office in 2002 NHB.
