A minor comprises a sequence of courses that focus on a particular area of study different from, and secondary to, the major. The Curriculum Committee requires that minors include 18-21 credits of required and elective courses that collectively provide coverage and understanding of the subject area.
Note: Any course selected for a minor cannot be a program requirement in the student’s major. All College Curriculum requirements and Open Electives can count towards a minor. In the event of duplication, the student must select an appropriate substitution for the same by completing a ”Curriculum Petition to Waive or Substitute a Requirement” form in consultation with a faculty member who teaches in the minor and the director of the school offering the minor. Students should work closely with their advisor to determine if they will able to meet the requirements of both the major and the minor degree program.
The Graphic Design Minor consists of four required courses and two electives.
Non-design school majors must take AR 112 before taking any of the Graphic Design courses and one more elective.
