Graduate Academic Minors (G)

Non-designated minors

Non-designated minors consist of course work constituting a unified plan of  study that includes a minimum of nine hours of graduate course work. These minors should be listed on a student’s plan of study; however, they are not listed on a student’s transcript.

Obtaining approval for a minor

Both designated and non-designated minors must be approved by the student’s major advisor, the student’s academic program director of graduate studies, and the Office of Graduate Studies.

In addition, the inclusion and completion of a designated minor must be approved by the director of graduate studies (or academic program chair/program director) of the academic program or interdisciplinary group offering the minor.  Designated minors are listed on a student's transcript.
