Tour a bustling market of knowledge and learning. At the Academic Minor Fair, you can:

  • Speak with representatives from various departments to discuss the benefits and opportunities associated with their minors.
  • Meet with faculty members, students and advisors who will answer questions, discuss curriculum details and share insights into the real-world applications of each minor.
  • Submit paperwork to declare your minor or pick up contact information to further discuss options at a later time.

What is an academic minor?

  • A minor is a secondary area of academic interest beyond your college major.
  • Some majors require a student to declare a minor while others do not. Even if not required, a minor is an opportunity to complement your declared major or explore a passion beyond your current classes.
  • Most minors require 18-21 credit hours, but there are exceptions. Discuss individual minor requirements with representatives at the fair.

A minor isn't just a set of courses; it's an opportunity to delve into a subject you're passionate about. Many minors include hands-on experiences, internships, research opportunities and community engagement projects. Learn how a minor can open doors to extracurricular pursuits that allow you to apply your knowledge in real-world settings.

Uncover the minors that can transform your academic journey into an enriching and multidimensional adventure. Your minor is more than just a choice—it's a reflection of your unique interests and a step towards becoming a well-rounded scholar of the world.
