Biology Minor (16 Credits)

Working with state-of-art scientific equipment in small classes taught by a diverse full-time faculty, students cultivate an intellectual curiosity about life processes while developing analytical skills and technical expertise. In addition to the Department’s acclaimed Tropical Biology program, students also have summer internship opportunities.

Any student who plans to work toward the Biology minor must meet with the Biology Department’s Assistant Chairperson, Professor Ross Koning for approval of the plan of study. koning@easternct.edu
