Minor in Missouri Studies
The Minor in Missouri Studies will provide crucial knowledge about Missouri's diverse history, culture, resources, and policy challenges for college graduates entering various career tracks in politics, state and local government, education, journalism, agriculture, law, tourism and others- particularly for those intending to remain in the state after graduation.
- The minor will require a minimum of 15 credit hours.
- At least six of those hours must be taken from a list of core courses.
- At least nine of the 15 must be completed in residence at the level of 2000 or above.
- Six of the nine must come from at least two of the three categories (Humanities/Fine Arts; Social Sciences; Environment and Resources).
- A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required for all courses that count towards the minor.
- Students will be encouraged, although not required, to take at least one course that includes a field component (an internship or travel across the state).
