A Minor in History and Philosophy of Science and Medicine complements many Majors in the Sciences, History, and Philosophy.
A minor in Medical Humanities complements the pre-med and health-related curricula; it will help you become a better health care practitioner!
Biology Club’s Spring semester callout is this Tuesday, January 31st at 7 PM in Ballantine 310! Make sure to come because we will be talking about our upcoming events this semester and what you can look forward to.
