Supplement your major or focus on a second field of study with a microbiology minor that you can tailor to complement your other fields of study, particularly within the College of Natural Sciences. 

In the microbiology minor, you’ll work directly on related projects with faculty members in their laboratories, and you’ll be able to participate as part of a team with other undergraduate students. With our holistic approach to education, what you learn in the classroom comes alive, bringing new relevance to courses and providing a fresh source of comprehension and motivation.

A microbiology minor paired with majors such as biochemistry and molecular biology, environmental science, or food science can expand your understanding and experience in these areas, significantly strengthening your breadth of knowledge and benefiting you in your graduate studies and along your career path.
