Undergraduate Policies

Minor Area Requirements

The requirements for minors are established by University departments or by interdisciplinary committees. No minor program may consist of less than 18 semester credits in the minor field or more than 24 semester credits. At least six credits must be completed at the upper-division course level for all minor studies. Students are advised that an aggregation of courses that totals 18 or more credits may not constitute a minor field. Specific options for minor programs depend on the major field which a student has elected to pursue and the collateral course requirements specified by major departments. Individuals interested in electing a minor program should consult the relevant section for curriculum requirements and prerequisites. 

Credits for each course may be counted only once in a student’s program of studies. A course which is specified as a requirement for both a student’s major and minor will satisfy both requirements, as stated, but course credits may not be counted more than once and may be applied to one category of a student’s program of studies only.  Individual departments may have a more restrictive policy.

Students in the College of Fine Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences should consult additional College policies on minors at the FAHSS Policies and Requirements section of the catalog.
