Animal Behavior Minor
This minor is designed for students who are interested in learning more about animal behavior, including the mechanisms that underlie behaviors and the evolutionary forces that may have shaped them. Students will also gain practical skills in the methods used to study animal behavior in laboratory and field settings.
If interested in or completing the minor, contact Dr. Daniel R. Howard in the Department of Biological Sciences, (603) 862-0242, firstname.lastname@example.org to be included on the list of students working toward minor completion, to receive emails on special events and activities for Animal Behavior students, and/or to complete the Certification of Completion of Minor form. This form should be completed at the beginning of your final semester. If a student is interested in using a course that he or she feels is relevant but that is not included on this list, contact Dr. Howard with details on the course and to request permission.
Students must earn a grade of C- or better in all courses taken for the minor. No more than 8 credits taken for the minor may be used toward a student's major.
