A minor is a program of study with less depth than a major. It may be completed as an addition to a major or to complement a major.
To minor in a program of study, a student must complete a minimum of 18 credit hours. The requirements and the curriculum for a minor are determined by the academic department offering the minor. Students must apply and receive approval from the department chairs of both academic programs and Academic Administration. Credits applied toward a minor will not count toward completion of a declared major.
