Bioenvironmental Sciences - Minor

The purpose of the Bioenvironmental Sciences minor is to prepare students for a breadth of career choices in the environmental sciences. The minor in Bioenvironmental Sciences is available to all students enrolled in majors at Texas A&M University outside of the Department of Plant Pathology & Microbiology. 

The minor requirements can be found on the Program Requirements tab. Note that all prerequisites for each core and elective course also must be met.  Prerequisite courses will not be applied to the minor requirements and do not count toward the number of hours needed to complete the minor.
