Plant Sciences

(18 semester hours)


Plants are essential to life on this planet, yet they are often overlooked as mere scenery. This minor will address this "plant blindness" by introducing students to the unique biology, diversity and uses of plants


This minor is open to Biology majors (AB or BS), but only 10 credit hours may count in both the minor and the major. This minor is not open to Botany majors, nor can students earn both this minor and the minor in Horticulture.  A minimum 2.00 GPA is required for the minor; courses for the minor may not be taken credit/no-credit. At least 10 hours must be from advanced (200+ level) courses. If you plan to take a minor in plant sciences, please consult with the Biology Chief Departmental Advisor.
