Assistant Dean for Curriculum
Any student pursuing a B.A. or B.S. degree in the College of Liberal Arts or a baccalaureate degree in another University of Minnesota - Twin Cities college may select outside the major field a minor from among those minors that have been authorized by the College in accord with the procedures defined below.
A proposal for a new minor may be submitted to the College by:
The minor shall consist of 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx/5xxx level courses totaling at least 14 credits. The College shall have authority to approve deviations from this limit.
The unit offering the minor shall define it in either of two ways:
The unit offering the minor may wish to require the completion of 2xxx/3xxx/4xxx/5xxx level courses in another department, program, or unit, and where the minor course program includes courses offered by that other unit, the same course may be applied toward both the major and minor requirements.
Units may decide whether or not to allow courses that are used to satisfy the requirements of a student's major program in another unit also to be used to satisfy those of its own minor.
