THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING STUDENTS
Minors have been established within the University to provide opportunities for formal inter-school study. Students must be enrolled in a degree program and must be in good standing to be eligible to take a Minor in another school. The Minor Fields generally consist of 15-21 credits of prescribed courses, depending on the Field. Upon successful completion of all requirements, the title of Minor Field of Study and the courses taken in support of the Field are entered on the student’s transcript.
