                    Minors

                    While minors are not offered in every field of study, the A. James Clark School of Engineering offers the following eight approved minors:

                    Minors afford students the opportunity to pursue a limited but structured concentration in a coherent field of study outside their major.

                    The minor may be a truncated version of a major or a distinctive intellectual subset of a discipline. The structures of minors vary in detail, but, with rare exceptions, they all require no fewer than 15 and no more than 24 credits with at least 9 credits in upper division courses (300 level or above). No more than six credits (or two courses) may be applied to satisfy both the requirements of a minor and a major program. No course may be used to satisfy the requirements of more than one minor. All courses taken for a minor must be completed with a minimum grade of C- or better.

                    When a student has completed all requirements for the minor, the unit offering the minor shall notify the student's college, which verifies that the student has met all requirements and officially notifies the Registrar's Office. The completion of a minor is posted on the student's official transcript only when the student completes all requirements for the bachelor's degree.
