Biology Minor

Why earn a minor in biology?

You can earn a minor in biology at IUPUC to complement your major area of study, such as a sociology, nursing, education, or communication studies degree program.

Although most employers are more interested in your college major than any minor you may have earned, do not discount the potential edge in a competitive job market that a well-selected academic minor can provide. In some cases, having a biology minor could make a prospective employer choose you over another qualified candidate competing for the same position.

I would say that there is probably nothing more important as part of the education of students at Indiana University than the international engagement aspect of their education.
