Great Books Minor


Advisor: Michael J. Neth, Department of English

The Great Books interdisciplinary minor is designed to offer students the opportunity to broaden their undergraduate education and supplement their own major field by studying the most important and influential texts in a number of different disciplines. Students will be presented with the ways in which some of the most significant books ever written shaped, altered, and influenced the formation of human civilization.

The Great Books minor requires a minimum of 18 hours of courses, with the provision that no more than 6 hours may be taken in a single department. The program advisor may approve the substitution of courses under some circumstances.

Interdisciplinary Minors


Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
