Students should indicate their interest in the QBio minor option in their application or when communicating with their home program upon acceptance. Once the minor coursework has been completed, students submit their transcript to the faculty director (Dr. Pamela Kreeger) for verification and submission to the graduate school.
We aim to attract the best and brightest students in computer science, statistics, math, biology, and engineering – and we recognize that many of these talented students will not have had the opportunity to be trained in both quantitative and biological sciences. Students who enter with skills primarily in one area will benefit from the minor’s distribution of coursework across complementary areas in order to gain skills critical for interdisciplinary quantitative biology research.
