    Minors, Secondary Majors, and Certificates

    Minors
    Undergraduate minors provide students an opportunity to emphasize study in an area outside their major curriculum. Because expertise in areas related to a major may be beneficial, students are encouraged to consider broadening their course of study through pursuit of a minor. Students completing all requirements for a minor will receive official recognition for their emphasis on their permanent records.

    A minor requires completion of at least 15 designated hours of course work. Faculty in departments offering minors have specified courses that enable students to acquire moderate expertise in their discipline. Courses forming a minor may be used to satisfy the general requirements of a major curriculum, including free electives.

    Declaration of a minor is optional. Students are not required to complete a minor to graduate.

    Students interested in completing one or more minors should consult their advisor. Additional counsel should be sought from the minor program director. Students are encouraged to seek advice and information about potential areas of emphasis early in their academic planning.

    For more information on specific minors, consult individual department course listings.
