                                                                                              College of Education



                                                                   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.




                                                                         Minor in Dance
                                         Requirements for Program
                                         The Department of Kinesiology and Health Promotion offers undergraduate
                                         courses and degree programs in kinesiology (physical education) and health
                                         promotion. These programs support the College of Education’s theme of
                                         teacher as reflective decision maker. The process of reflective decision-
                                         making is imbedded in the departmental philosophy that students learn best
                                         through experiencing.
                                         The minor in dance is for persons interested in dance who may wish to do
                                         graduate work in dance, apply dance principles to teaching dance in K-12
                                         school settings, or in private studio work in dance. Persons interested in the
                                         dance minor should anticipate that it will take between two and a half to three
                                         years to complete the full set of courses, as each course is not taught every
                                         semester.
