Natural Sciences Minor

The Natural Sciences minor provides students with an understanding of the concepts and principles of applying scientific inquiry.  Students will be exposed to a range of scientific disciplines.  The minor is especially valuable for students in a STEM program such as Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Earth Science, Engineering, or Mathematics who want to develop a deeper appreciation of other scientific fields.  

The minor is not solely, or even primarily, for Natural Sciences & Mathematics majors. Students from many allied programs, including Kinesiology, pre-Nursing and Education, often pursue minors within the Division. Students interested in acquiring a minor for teacher certification should first consult with their academic advisor and the Education Division.
