Minors

Students in many schools may take one or more minors along with their majors. Minors will not appear on the student’s transcript until graduation. Students majoring in one school often can elect to complete minors in other schools.

Minors are structured programs generally of 15 to 18 credit hours, though they may require more. They are of three types:

  1. departmental or single-discipline minors,
  2. interdisciplinary or cross-discipline minors,
  3. thematic minors.

In most schools, only courses in which students receive at least a C (2.0) can be applied to the minor. For more information on available minors and the specific requirements for minors contact your degree-granting school.
