The Minor

A minor in Global Disease Biology may complement a student's major program. Note that some courses have required prerequisites not included as part of the minor, and students should plan accordingly. 

If you plan to declare the GDB minor, you MUST meet with our office to set up an academic plan before your last year at UC Davis. If you do not, you may not be able to declare GDB as a minor.

Our faculty includes members of the Departments of Plant Pathology from the College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, School of Veterinary Medicine, and School of Medicine.
