Social Sciences – Minor


Return to Programs Return to: Programs

A minor in social sciences provides an opportunity to explore the linkages among anthropology, psychology, sociology, and communication and how these disciplines interpret community or world events. The minor consists of 18 credits of coursework beyond the prerequisite course in an area of interest, including 12 elective credits with a common intellectual bond approved by the minor advisor. A minimum of 12 credits of minor coursework must be completed in addition to any courses (required courses or program electives) included in the major curriculum. Up to 6 credits of coursework, with an earned grade of “C” or better, taken at another accredited institution may be applied to the course requirements of the minor upon prior approval of the department chair.

Interested students should apply to the minor program early in their academic career, usually by the fifth semester of college work, but no later than the end of the drop/add period of the first semester of their last year of didactic work.

For more information on applying for and completing a minor, please see Minors  in the Academics section of this catalog.
