Minors in Humanities Division

A minor in a Humanities discipline is a great way to complement one’s major, enhance one’s career
preparation, develop a secondary area of expertise, or explore a passion. Study in the Humanities
encourages students to think outside of the box; the Humanities promote creativity and other skills
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 they major.
