2020-21 Undergraduate Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]
Interdisciplinary Majors and Minors
A minor is a component of a degree and is not a stand-alone credential. A minor cannot be earned unless a student is enrolled in a degree program.
Interdisciplinary majors and minors provide programs of study that focus on a specific theme by combining courses from different disciplines and several academic departments.
The specific requirements, the coordinating department for each of the University’s interdisciplinary majors, and the faculty advisor for each major appear at the links below:
- Africana Studies, B.A.
- Africana Studies, B.S.
- Forensic Science, B.S.
- Integrated Studies, B.S.
- Integrated Studies, Applied Leadership Concentration, B.S.
- Professional Studies, Health Administration Concentration, B.S.
- Professional Studies, Information Technology Concentration, B.S.
- Professional Studies, Organizational Leadership Concentration, B.S.
- Professional Studies, International Organizational Leadership Concentration, B.S.
These 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.
