2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]


A minor consists of at least 15 semester hours, with no fewer than nine credits at the 3000 level or higher.* A student cannot major and minor in the same field or acquire a minor that is not allowed by the degree program. In programs that require a minor, courses may not be used to fulfill both the major and minor requirements. Only courses that are outside the major’s subject code may be used to fulfill minor requirements in programs where a minor is required. Regardless of whether a minor, concentration, or emphasis area is required, courses may not be used to fulfill a second minor, concentration, or emphasis area. Even though a course may satisfy two requirements, the credits will only count once toward total hours. Students are encouraged to contact the department offering the minor for advising. Specific requirements are detailed below.

*Nine credits at the 3000 or 4000 level are not required for a minor in Art, as approved by the University Undergraduate Curriculum Committee 2010.
