Majors & Minors


Students declare a major at the beginning of the freshman year and are assigned a faculty advisor within that department.


A minor is a program within a recognized area of knowledge offering students more than a casual introduction to the area but less than a major in it. Each minor includes at least 15 credit hours. Minors may be combined with any departmental major. A student who completes all designated courses in a minor with a grade point average of at least 2.0 will have the minor entered on the transcript at the time of graduation.
