Minors

Departmental Minor

A departmental minor consists of six or seven courses. These must include one introductory level course and at least one upper-level course or seminar. Students choose courses for the minor in consultation with the director of the department’s minor program. No more than two Core courses may be used toward a minor. Core courses not counting toward a departmental major will not count toward a departmental minor. Students may not major and minor in the same department unless that department offers more than one major.
