Minor

The Graduate School does not require a minor, though individual programs may require one. If a program does not require a minor, the graduate student has the option of choosing one, except in an Option B Master's program. The minor work will usually be from a single discipline or field that in the judgment of the advisory committee provides relevant support to the major field. However, the committee has the alternative of developing an interdisciplinary minor if it best serves the needs of the student. When a student does select a minor, the advisory committee must include a representative of the minor field. The minor credits on the Plan of Graduate Work must be approved by the graduate advisory committee member representing the minor, and, in some cases, the DGP from the minor program.
