1. Biotechnology Minor The minor is designed for students
interested in gaining insight into the science underlying
biotechnology, exploring its potential for the future, and
obtaining practical experience in laboratory techniques used
in the biotechnology research and its applications.

2. Environmental Studies Minor The minor provides an opportunity
for students to focus on environmental issues through a variety of
academic approaches in the humanities, social and natural sciences,
engineering and law. click here to see the Environmental studies

3. Biomedical Engineering Minor Degree The Biomedical Engineering
minor degree is primarily designed for science majors in the College
of Arts and Sciences. This minor degree could be a valuable asset for
science majors interested in biomedical research and/or health-related
careers, including those completing pre-requisites for medical school
and other health-related professional schools.
