Minors, Double Majors and Combined Degrees
How do I complete a minor or a second major in another field?
Students wishing to obtain a minor or a second major in another program or department are required to meet the guidelines set by that program or department. Courses for a minor or second major can be drawn from a student's open electives, Liberal Studies requirements, or their primary major. Note that in some cases, a double major may require more credit hours to complete than the ordinary minimum number needed for graduation. A C- grade or better is required in all courses taken for any major or minor. Students may declare their minor or second major fields using the online declaration form.
