Are you fascinated by the natural world and have always wondered why things are made the way they are? Would you describe yourself as inquisitive or strategic? Do you have a desire to study life and all its physical properties, from the smallest insects to the largest mammals? If so, a minor in organismal biology could be an excellent complement to your major.
A minor in organismal biology from PLNU offers a specialized route to investigate the role organisms play in biological systems. You will take ecology and biology classes that provide hands-on learning opportunities to study structure and function at the level of the entire organism. Electives like plant biology, vertebrate biology, animal behavior, marine ecology, and more offer you unique options to explore different roles in the diversity of life.
