Students may choose from a variety of programs that the College has designated as minor fields of study. The minor consists of a minimum of 15 credits of course work, forming a coherent program relating to a specific academic objective. Students are allowed to have two majors and a single minor, or a major and two minor fields. Minors are not required.
Minors provide opportunities for students to pursue in a focused and integrated manner programs of study not currently available as majors, and to provide an alternative to double majors for students who wish to pursue more than one program of study. Minors also enable students to prepare for careers or further study in more than one area of concentrated knowledge.
