The Mycology Minor is designed to provide essential knowledge and training for careers where fungi are major players. Fungi are important in microbiology/healthcare, agriculture and plant disease management, ecology and forestry, fermentation/brewing and food science. The Mycology Minor is also valuable to students interested in multiple areas of biology and chemistry research, including natural products discovery and synthetic biology. The Minor in Mycology is open to all students with introductory coursework in biology.
Ohio State and the Department of Plant Pathology have several faculty and research programs in mycology. Take advantage of the coursework and other opportunities to learn about the important and fascinating biology of fungi.
