The minor provides a traditional, well-accepted way to recognize that a student has completed a significant body of work outside the major. Students can follow-up on long-time personal interests, satisfy intellectual curiosity generated by introductory courses, differentiate their program of study from those of fellow students or enhance their opportunities for employment or for admission to graduate or professional schools.
Applying for a Minor
Students should review the information about their minor of interest in this catalog. In general, each minor page explains which students are eligible to pursue the minor, any qualifications or prerequisites necessary to be eligible for the minor and the requirements to complete the minor. Students are also encouraged to discuss the minor with the offering department.
Students interested in pursuing a minor must complete an application. The application requires the approval of the student’s college as well as the college offering the minor. Students who are about to graduate and who have already completed all the requirements for the minor still must apply for admission using the button below to be granted the minor upon graduation. The approval process can take some time so students are strongly encouraged to apply to pursue a minor early.
