A minor is a sequence of courses clustered within a particular discipline, sub-discipline, or limited set of disciplines, which includes both lower- and upper-division courses and which is offered by a department, program, or institute. A minor is more limited in scope than a major, and may have a somewhat different focus and objective that make it appropriate for students whose principal concentration is in another discipline. Students may not create individualized minors.
The undergraduate College also recognizes multidisciplinary minors created from related courses located in a number of departments, programs, or institutes. These multidisciplinary minors combine content and skills from several fields, enhancing the understanding of those fields and how they intersect. In so doing, the multidisciplinary minor promotes the kind of synthetic learning important for graduates who will work, study, or serve within increasingly diverse and interconnected communities.
Students may declare up to three minors although students are not required to complete a minor. Students must achieve at least a 2.000 GPA in each minor.
