Students do not need to apply for the minor prior to taking coursework. However, students interested in pursuing the LSC doctoral minor are strongly encouraged to contact the department student services coordinator to discuss course planning.
The doctoral minor in Life Sciences Communication is a course-based minor (10 credits) for students enrolled in other Ph.D. programs who would like to supplement their existing Ph.D. coursework with a minor in science communication.
Courses must be at the 300 level or above and should have the graduate attribute to count toward the minimum graduate coursework (50%) rule.
A minimum cumulative GPA of a 3.5 in LSC Doctoral Minor coursework is required.
Contact the Student Services Coordinator to discuss course selection for the minor.
