The life sciences research minor is designed for students interested in gaining hands-on experience in scientific research in the field of biology. Through a combination of research-intensive coursework and either field or laboratory research, students will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct independent research projects and contribute to the advancement of biological knowledge. Upon completion of the minor, students will have a solid foundation in biology research as well as the critical thinking, problem-solving, and communication skills necessary to excel in a research-oriented career or graduate or professional study in biology or related fields.
