Graduate Minors


The Graduate Minor in Anatomy offers students enrolled in Graduate School at The Ohio State University the opportunity to study one or more of the sub-disciplines of human anatomy, which may be of direct benefit to their major field of research and provide an added dimension to their scholarly training. Students who complete a Minor in Anatomy will have this achievement recognized on their university transcript.


A Graduate Minor in Anatomy may benefit any graduate student whose research involves human form and function. The Minor may be of particular interest to students in engineering, computer modeling, physical anthropology, art, exercise science, or other biological/health sciences.


A minimum of 12 semester hours of credit for courses in Anatomy are required to receive a Graduate Minor in Anatomy. These hours must be distributed among at least four anatomy courses (Anatomy 6900 counts as two courses) and they must include 2 of the 4 core courses: Anatomy 6600, Anatomy 6700, Anatomy 6800, and Anatomy 6900. Students must receive a grade of B (or better) or S in each course comprising the Graduate Minor in Anatomy.

The student will consult with the Chair of the Anatomy GSC to choose courses that best suits the student’s scholarly objectives.
