The individualized minor is designed to provide flexibility for students to pursue a secondary academic goal that does not fit within the structure of available minors. A student who proposes such an individualized minor must have at least 48 semester hours of work remaining toward the 128-semester-hour degree requirement at the time of entry into the program. The program, which must receive the approval of the Curriculum Committee,* requires:

  1. a clear statement of the objective to be reached by the program
  2. a course-by-course, semester-by-semester schedule leading to the minor
  3. a minimum of 16 semester hours and a maximum of 20 semester hours for the approved program to be determined by the Curriculum Committee in consultation with the advisor; no more than 4 of the hours may be counted in another major or minor; a copy of the approved program must be signed by the Curriculum Committee Chairperson and kept on file in the Registrar’s Office
  4. written recommendations from the faculty advisor of record and a knowledgeable faculty member from another department indicating their approval of the plan and their assurance that the liberal education emphasis of the University is maintained

Submit the proposal for an individualized minor to:  Academic Affairs, Suite 316, Roush Hall.

*Once the program is approved, any forthcoming substitutions and/or waivers must be approved by the Curriculum Committee.
