Behavioral biology involves a study of interaction between organisms and their environment, a very pervasive part of biology and its applications. Biology is fundamental to understanding some of the phenomena in the social sciences, especially those considered in psychology and sociology.
The minor in behavioral biology establishes a concentration of biology courses that provide keys to understanding behavior in all animals, including that of human beings. These courses would provide a biological perspective of behavior to complement a social science perspective. It would be of special interest to students of social sciences and humanities.
All courses for any minor in biology must be passed with a grade of C minus or better.
