The Humanities Department offers seven minors for students in Humanities and from different disciplines across campus.

  • Modern Languages
  • Communication Studies
  • Bioethics
  • Diversity Studies
  • Ethics and Philosophy
  • Journalism
  • Media Production
  • Writing

A minor requires a minimum of 16-credit hours of course work (varies by department). No more than six credits of 1000- or 2000-level courses can count toward a minor, though some departments may allow more than six if the total number required for the minor is more than 16. The minor must include at least six credits of 3000- or 4000-level courses. These courses must not be required by the student's major (except as free elective hours). Students interested in adding a minor to their degree program must consult their academic advisors as well as the minor department.
