Bachelor's degree students who are interested in genetics and genomics can earn a minor in genetics.

Students should declare an intent to earn a genetics minor as early as possible, but no later than the end of the junior year, by filling out the Intent to Minor form.  Contact the Minor Advisor Professor Matthew MacManes at (603) 862-4052 or matthew.macmanes@unh.edu in Rudman Hall, Room 189, with questions.

Students will be assigned a minor adviser who should be consulted with questions about courses and minor requirements.
