Minor

Due to the breadth of the field, including its large number of specialties, and due to the fact that each possible major field and each individual student may have very different needs, we believe that we may best serve the student by providing considerable flexibility in the minor. Further, it is intended that the students develop their minors in consultation with their major advisors.

NOTE: Some courses may have prerequisites
