Arts and Sciences Minors

Secondary banner

 

Most major programs in Arts and Sciences also require you to take a minor. A minor insures that you have extra classes, mostly at a higher (junior or senior) level, in an area outside of your primary focus. A minor gives your education greater depth. The exceptions to having a required minor are if you are pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, or a Bachelor of Music degree -- these majors do not need to have a minor.

Your minor should be in a program other than your major. Usually, this means your minor should be in a different department, although in some departments with multiple majors, such as Sociology, Anthropology, and Social Work, your minor could be in another major in that department. Talk with your advisor for details

Some minors in other colleges are available to Arts and Sciences majors; see here for a list.
