Minors in Humanities Division

Most students have room for some electives in their schedule. If you're one of those students, why not put those electives to good use and earn a minor? Choosing a minor in a Humanities discipline is a great way to complement your major, enhance your career preparation, allow you to develop a secondary area of expertise, or give you a chance to explore a passion. Study in the Humanities encourages students to think outside of the box; the Humanities promote creativity, and these skills are highly desirable to employers. Students should work with their advisors early to incorporate a minor into their academic roadmap.

A student cannot declare a minor in the same discipline in which he or she majors.
