Minor Policy

A minor should enrich a student’s major, allow for specialization within a major, broaden a student’s career options, and encourage exposure to other academic disciplines. While most disciplines require 18 units to complete a minor, some departments require additional units. In addition to the requirements for individual academic disciplines, a student must complete three upper division courses (9 units) for a minor that are not also being used to fulfill requirements for the major, general studies, or another minor. The deadline for declaring a minor will be the end of the student’s junior year.
