All About Minors

Thinking about earning a minor? Read on.

Most students have room for some electives in their schedule. If you're one of those students, why not put those electives to good use and earn a minor?

A minor can complement your major, enhance your career preparation, allow you to develop a secondary area of expertise, or give you a chance to explore a passion.

Minors require between 15 and 21 credits, and all but 8 of those credits can be used simultaneously to fill other requirements. The college offers over 52 minors, many related to the majors. If you are having trouble choosing between two majors, consider majoring in one area and minoring in another.

For suggestions of minors to complete your major, see the list of minors below.
