Pavlis Honors College

Minors

A minor allows you to pursue interests in an area of knowledge outside of your major field of study. To pursue a minor, you must be enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program and file a Curriculum Add/Drop Form to inform the Registrar's Office of your interest in the minor. We recommend that you begin your minor studies as early as possible in your academic career.

The following are minors offered by the Pavlis Honors College:

Student competing in Idea Pitch Competition

Leadership

Students who complete the Leadership minor will have an increased awareness of their leadership abilities and responsibilities, increased leadership experiences, and knowledge of leadership principles and best practices. Students will have a competitive advantage in the job market and subsequent career or in graduate school. They will experience a shortened transition time from traditional business, engineering and science functions to leadership positions.

Student working with elementary school kids in the local community.

Global Community Development Partnerships

The Global Community Development Partnerships minor builds competencies in intercultural sensitivity, diversity, understanding communities, and a prominent sector of development work in order to partner effectively with communities on projects.  Students must complete a hands-on immersion experience that aligns with their chosen development sector. The minor places a strong focus on working in cross-cultural and diverse communities, which directly aligns with these university learning goals: global literacy, social responsibility and ethical reasoning. The minor curriculum is designed to pair well with earning a Peace Corps Prep certificate.  Peace Corps Prep is an official university partnership with the U.S. Peace Corps for undergraduates.

Students involved in the Enterprise Program have the option of fulfilling the Enterprise minor. This requires a minimum of 6 credits at the 3000 level or higher which are not specifically required for a student's major, except as free electives.
