See Definitions. Minors represent a second discipline as a complement to a major or concentration. Minors are especially useful for students considering careers in education, communications, business, the social sciences, the sciences, history, general studies, Christian ministry, or for students who are considering future graduate programs. Students are not permitted to complete a minor in the same discipline as their major.

To gain admission to a minor in any discipline, students must apply online using the application form available at
