Students who wish to develop focused competencies in biochemistry, molecular biology, and/or cell biology can complement their major academic program with a minor in biochemistry, molecular and cellular biology (BMCB). The minor consists of a minimum of 20 credits, no more than 8 of which can be used to fulfill major requirements.  A grade of C-minus or better is required for all courses counted towards the minor.  A C average (2.00) is required in courses that the minor department approves.  It is the student’s responsibility to complete a Certification of Completion of Minor form during their final semester at UNH.

Complete 20 credits from the courses listed below, with a grade of C- or better.
No more than 8 credits used to satisfy major requirements may be used for the minor.
4 credits of BMCB 795 (Investigations) may be used toward the minor.
Pass/fail courses may not be used for the minor.
