Minors

Minors are an excellent option for students who want to expand their knowledge in an area related to their majors or simply to explore an area for which they have special interests. In addition, a minor can have a positive impact on the job search. A minor must carry a minimum of 18 credit hours, with one-third of those credits at the 300/400-level.

Courses required for minors may require a prerequisite. In those instances, students must fulfill the prerequisite and the course required to complete the minor in order to earn the minor.
