  • A minor is a secondary field of study that often complements a major. Although not a degree requirement, a minor allows students to include related coursework in a meaningful way. Minors typically require a minimum 30 additional credits. Students interested in pursuing a minor will be held to all applicable requirements laid out in the Undergraduate Minors Policy 84-1. Majors offering undergraduate minors outline specific requirements in the current undergraduate catalog or go to the Program Information for all Majors page.

    You can find guidelines on how to add a minor.
