Students in other majors who wish to develop a focus in the area of genetics and genomics can complement their major academic program with a minor in genetics.
The minor consists of a minimum of 20 credits, completed with a grade of C-minus or better.
No more than 8 credits used to fulfill major requirements may be used for the minor.
A C average (2.00) is required in courses that the minor department approves.
A maximum of 4 credits of GEN 795 Investigations in Genetics may be used to fulfill minor requirements.
Pass/fail courses cannot be used for the minor.
It is the student’s responsibility to file an Intent to Minor form with the GEN minor advisor by the end of the junior year and to complete a Certification of Completion of Minor form during their final semester at UNH.
