Minors

Students may pursue minors in any department in any college that offers them, subject to limitations placed by the department offering the minor or by the student's major. Completed minors will appear on the student's transcript. Not all departments offer minors. Consult the appropriate section in Courses of Study or contact the appropriate department for information on minors offered and how to pursue a minor.

Note: ILR students do not pursue formal minors in ILR. Individuals may decide to focus their elective courses in a particular field, however, this does not constitute a minor.
