    Required Courses

    • 12 credit hours (four courses)

    An introductory biology course + lab is a prerequisite for most of the courses in this minor. If the biology requirement is not already part of your undergraduate program, it may increase your total credit hours. 

    A minor can only be earned as part of an undergraduate program. Talk with an ODUGlobal enrollment coordinator to determine if you have credits that will transfer.
