2016-2017 Catalog

University Minors

Students in bachelor's degree programs can develop additional business skills by pursuing a minor in a second area of study. Minors are groups of five courses that provide a foundation in selected areas. These five courses would satisfy five of the course requirements in the Elective Component of the bachelor's degree program. Requirements for a minor are a minimum of five courses (22.5 quarter credit hours) beyond any required courses in the Core Component, Major Component, or General Education Component in the program major. As course work is completed for the bachelor's degree, courses in the selected minor would be taken to fulfill elective requirements in the Elective Component. Students may not apply the same course to satisfy the requirements in the minor or the Core, Major, or General Education Component. Students must declare a minor during the graduation application process.
