Graduate students who wish to pursue a doctoral minor in integrative biology should consult a faculty member within the Department of Integrative Biology (their potential minor professor) or the chair of the integrative biology graduate committee.

All Graduate School students must utilize the Graduate Student Portal in MyUW to add, change, or discontinue any doctoral minor. To apply to this minor, log in to MyUW, click on Graduate Student Portal, and then click on Add/Change Programs. Select the information for the doctoral minor for which you are applying.
