A minor is a subject or course of study that provides the essence of a major discipline, but requires less intensive concentration than a major field of study. Minors are available in a variety of academic subject areas and those officially-recognized minors will be placed on a transcript. Students must declare and successfully complete a four-year major program in order to receive credit for a minor. To earn a minor, students must attain a minimum GPA of 2.0 in minor coursework. Upon graduation, however, students may not complete or declare an additional minor unless that minor is accompanied by an additional degree and major. Minor coursework must consist of a minimum of three credit hours beyond the student's major, emphasis, concentration, and/or general studies requirements. Students cannot be awarded a minor in the same area as their major, emphasis, or concentration.
