School of Science and Technology Minors

Considering a minor?

Minors must be outside of your major and concentration. Up to two courses that have been prescribed by your major as General Education requirements may be counted towards a minor. The minimum number of credits for a minor is 18. Courses that fulfill other General Education requirements or free electives may be used to complete the minor.

Double Minors Policy

You may have two minors, but courses can only count towards one of the minors. Depending upon the major, you may not be able to complete the requirements of the minors within four years or within the minimum number of credits for your degree.
