Students of any major can pursue a minor in biology, developing abilities that are highly valued in a variety of career paths. You’ll learn about basic chemical principles and metabolism, plant and animal anatomy and physiology, and the biodiversity of life, along with many other foundational skills. You’ll then choose from advanced courses that will help you hone your critical thinking skills and learn to solve challenging problems in the classroom and the lab.
Interdisciplinary Concentrations and Minors
Studies in biology play an important role in two interdisciplinary programs, which students can take along with a major at John Carroll: Neuroscience, for biology, chemistry, and psychology majors interested in studying the brain and nervous system; and Population and Public Health, which helps prepare students to be leaders in improving the health of communities.
