Biology Area Minor

ABBE lab frog

Minors/Second Major

The Area Minor in Biology is designed to allow students to enrich studies in their major area. Students wishing to apply another science, mathematics, or engineering discipline to investigate or solve problems in biological systems are encouraged to pursue the Area Minor in Biology. With proper course selection, the Area Minor will provide another marketable dimension to any Bachelor of Science degree granted by the Institute. For more information on the Biology Minor, please visit theĀ undergraduate course catalog.

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology Area Minor

Biomedical Engineering Minor

The biomedical engineering area minor is intended to provide a strong biomedical engineering background to undergraduate students who are interested in pursuing careers in the biomedical industry and the health care related fields. Please visit the course catalog.

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology (Second Major Only)

The Biochemistry & Molecular Biology program exists to give students an opportunity to augment their education in this technologically-important field. To support this effort, Rose-Hulman provides students with access to a modern and well-equipped biochemistry lab, along with an excellent biological sciences facility. Two faculty are directly involved with this program: Dr. Mark Brandt, assistant professor of chemistry, is the program coordinator and is a biochemist, and Dr. Richard Anthony, associate professor of biology, is a molecular biologist. Many other faculty in both the chemistry and biology departments assist with this curriculum.

Biochemistry & Molecular Biology is available to Rose-Hulman students as a second major. This means that the student will receive a first degree in some other discipline and then can augment their education with this program. Students whose first degree programs are in chemistry or chemical engineering will find the program easiest since there is considerable overlap between those programs and the biochemistry & molecular biology requirements. Students from other disciplines are also encouraged to participate, but will have to take more courses.
