Program Overview

The student and the student’s advisor should plan the minor around a theme appropriate to the student’s educational goals. The minor is not designed to serve as a spot for placing courses which have been completed, but which do not meet another requirement. The advisor and the department chair for the student’s major must approve the courses used for the minor, and the chair must sign the application for graduation as chair of the minor.


Progression & Graduation Requirements
  • Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas A through E may not be counted as coursework in the minor.
  • A grade of C or better is required in all courses.

Upper Division Courses: 15 Hours

The minor requires 15 hours of course work at the 3000 and 4000 level in at least two disciplines, with at most 9 hours from one discipline. At least 9 hours must be taken at this university. Courses may not be chosen from the student’s major field.

Total hours for the Minor: 15
