Minor in Microbiology
The department offers a minor in Microbiology for students majoring in other fields. The minor consists of a 24-unit core and 8 units of electives. The purpose of this minor is to allow students from a variety of related majors the opportunity to focus a portion of their baccalaureate course work on microbiology in order to qualify them for postbaccalaureate positions requiring such knowledge. Chemistry 101, 301AB, and 302AB are prerequisite to several of the courses in the minor. Interested students are urged to consult with a microbiology faculty member for advisement before beginning the minor.
