A student may obtain a combined Accounting/Information Systems minor consisting of 18 semester hours. This is an excellent minor for students pursuing majors outside the Jennings A. Jones College of Business. A 2.00 GPA is required in the Accounting/Information Systems minor, and 3 hours at the upper-division level must be taken at MTSU. This minor is not available to Accounting or Information Systems students.
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.
