About this Program
Students pursuing the minor are expected to attend six events before graduation: public lectures, workshops, seminars, and the speakers series offered by the center. These events provide an opportunity to interact with visiting speakers on topics of current interest. Students are required to submit online a one page paper about the event within 24 hours of participation.
Students must have a 3.25 GPA and have completed general education requirements before admission to the minor. Students normally apply during the sophomore or junior year; application deadlines are October 1 and April 1.
Applications must include:
- A 2-3 page statement of purpose indicating why the student is applying and how the minor will help their future career
- One letter of recommendation, preferably from a faculty member, and
- A brief résumé.
Students must complete a minimum of six credits of coursework exclusive to the minor that cannot count toward their major(s) or other minors.
