The departmental undergraduate advisor must approve a program of study in advance, and a minimum GPA of 2.0 must be achieved for the course work completed in the minor.

NOTE: Students completing a minor must be sure that at least 12 credit hours of the minor requirements are unique to that minor, and are not being used to satisfy requirements in the major or another minor. Work with your advisor to establish a course plan satisfying college and department requirements for a minor.
