A Minor is an opportunity for a student to explore a secondary area of undergraduate study either for personal interest beyond a student’s degree program, or as an area of specific expertise related to the student’s degree program that will serve the student’s career choice.
A Minor consists of six one-semester courses with a relationship based on discipline, theme and/or methodology, as determined by the program offering the Minor and approved by the Senate.
For more information see Senate Policy #148.

Minors are optional and students are reminded that their focus should be on the completion of their program’s graduation requirements. Students are cautioned that taking extra courses in order to earn a Minor could affect overall academic performance and Academic Standing.
Students on PROBATIONARY Standing will not be permitted to take extra courses for the purposes of earning a Minor.
In the event that a student is not eligible for their chosen Minor(s), but is eligible to graduate from their degree program, he/she will still graduate from the degree program. In other words, the requirements for the Minor do not need to be satisfied in order to graduate from the program.
