Requirements for a Minor

Students have the option of taking additional courses for a minor. The subject of the minor appears in the final transcript, along with the title of the primary degree. Generally, pursuing a minor requires taking several classes in that area.

Minors are offered by individual programs. For example, a student in Mechanical Engineering may wish to pursue a minor in Chemistry. In this case, the student's primary department is Mechanical Engineering and the department offering the minor is Chemistry.

Departments that offer minors have their own requirements. For example, a minor in Chemistry requires 16 credit hours from a specific list of chemistry classes, while a minor in Manufacturing Engineering consists of 23 credit hours from a list of classes in that department. Please consult the undergraduate Catalog for details on specific minors.
