Minors

An academic minor consists of at least 15 credit hours of courses. The courses selected to fulfill the minor must be approved by the department or faculty group that offers the minor program.

  • Students may not major and minor in the same discipline.
  • Students with a minor must complete six credits of 3000/4000 level courses outside the major discipline. These six credits could be taken as part of the minor.
  • For a second, or subsequent, minor, at least nine credits must be different from the major or the first minor.

To earn a minor students must achieve at least a 2.00 grade point average in their minor. One exception is the pre-law minor, which requires a 3.00 grade point average. Declaration of an Academic Minor forms are available from the registrar.
