Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree Programs

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 of, and understanding in, the subject area.

A student who is a Professional Studies in Education Department Minor is required to take a minimum of 6 courses (18-21 credits), four required and two elective courses, designated by the Professional Studies in Education Department.

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 dean 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.

Any Education courses in the Catalog, other than the courses listed above, providing prerequisites are met.
