Minor Declaration

Minor Declaration

Students can declare minors only after declaring a major. Minors are optional and can be a way of exploring an interest area in a less in-depth way than a major, or of organizing elective credits. Minors require 18 to 25 credits.

At least half of the credits for the minor must not be contained within the program plan of the student's major. (This includes major courses as well as required cognate courses).

To declare a minor, meet with the Department Chair and complete the Declaration of Minor form.
