Bio Major + Photo Minor?

Question: Can I major in Biology and have a minor in photography?

In most cases, absolutely yes. But you would have to check with each college on your list to make sure that a minor in photography is offered. The majority of colleges have a biology major, so that shouldn't be the issue. But college policies can vary when it comes to minors. Some schools won't offer a minor in photography at all or may expect you to take photography as part of a broader studio art minor. So just check college Web sites or email an admission official if you're not sure of the rules at the colleges that you're considering. Note that just because a college offers a major in a particular field doesn't mean that there is a minor as well ... or vice versa. However, some colleges may let you create your own minor or major when there are enough related classes available.
