The integrative biotechnology minor complements diverse majors, building beneficial skill sets for careers in bioinformatics, genetic counseling, pharmaceutical research, chemical engineering, forensic science, bioremediation, patent law, bioethics, and many other fields. Students considering this minor should contact the biotechnology advisor, D. Koetje.
The college’s course overlap policy states that students must have at least 14 unique 3+-credit courses between major and minor programs. Cognate courses do not factor into this total. Only students in the non-ACS chemistry or non-ACS biochemistry major are affected by this policy. If these students take Chemistry 105, then to satisfy the overlap requirement they will need to take one additional chemistry course.
