Cluster Minor

The Cluster minor allows students a somewhat wider choice of course materials than is possible with the conventional subject-matter minor. The general requirement for the Cluster minor is 15 credits in courses numbered higher than 3000, except where noted differently, chosen according to one of the plans below. Courses within the student’s major course rubric may not be included in the Cluster minor.

  • Group I - Social Sciences: anthropology, economics, geography, history, justice studies, political science, psychology, sociology
  • Group II - Life Sciences1: biochemistry, biological sciences, genetics, microbiology
  • Group III - Physical Sciences1: chemistry, geology, physics
  • Group IV - Engineering1: courses in all engineering majors, plus engineering mechanics and engineering graphics

1 No course in the 1000 series is acceptable toward the minor and not more than six hours in the 2000 series are acceptable.
