A minor is available only to a matriculated student currently pursuing a baccalaureate degree. While not required for graduation, a minor provides an option for the student who wants an academic focus in addition to a major.

Unless a higher standard is noted in the description of a specific minor program, completion of a minor requires that a student earn a C (2.0) grade or better in each of the required courses for that minor.

The same course may be used to meet both major and minor course requirements unless specifically stated otherwise in a major or minor. Substitutions are not allowed.

A plan of study for the minor; signed by the department or program head, director, or faculty designee; must be submitted to the Degree Audit Office during the first four weeks of the semester in which the student expects to graduate. The minor is then recorded on the student’s final transcript.

The minor may be chosen from any of those listed below in alphabetical order by title. Please follow the links to their descriptions and requirements.
