Minors Can Broaden Your Academic Experience
The Pathology minor, open to all majors, will provide courses geared toward providing jobs in autopsy suites and medical laboratories. The minor will better qualify students to take post-mortem pathology jobs, attracting students from programs including but not exclusive to funeral service, biology, forensic science, pre-medical, and pre-pharmacy. Further, the minor will provide qualifications to students in any major to enter into a pathology specialty within their major field of study.
