                                                                                                College of Arts and Sciences



                                                                            The Academic Minor
      Many departments have designed academic minors for the convenience of undergraduate students.

      A minor is a structured group of courses that leads to considerable knowledge and understanding of a subject, although with less depth than a
      major. Some employers consider minors desirable, and the corresponding major requirements at the University may stipulate a minor. Some
      students choose to complement their major program with a minor in a related field or even in an entirely different field of interest. Students interested
      in pursuing an academic minor should contact their college dean’s office and the department responsible for the minor program for guidance and
      advising.

      Please note that undergraduate students can only complete a minor in addition to and as a complement to a major. The University does
      not award stand-alone minors.
