Minors in Humanities DivisionMost 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.
We encourage students to work with their advisors early to incorporate the minor into their Academic Roadmap.
A student cannot declare a minor in the same discipline in which he or she majors.
