Academic Minors

An academic minor is a group of specified courses within an area of study which either enhances and/or complements an acquired body of knowledge within a major discipline or in a related or complementary discipline. Such a combined approach makes it possible for students to acquire intellectual versatility as well as an increased marketability which proves to be a decided advantage in today’s rapidly changing work environment. A student interested in pursuing an academic minor should consult with his/her academic advisor.
