There are two patterns of minors from which a candidate may choose:
A single minor consisting of at least 12 semester hours; 12 undergraduate hours in an area are prerequisite to a single minor in that area at the master’s level.
A minor consisting of a minimum of 6 semester hours in each of two subjects. The candidate is expected to complete the total program in the major, minor, and/or cognate fields. A cognate is defined as 6 semester hours.
