Minors for Majors

Majors in our department are strongly encouraged to use their distribution courses to form coherent minors in related subject areas. These minors add additional strength and documented expertise to your B.A. degree, and can be used to profile your other interests for potential employers or graduate programs.

Some common external minors for departmental majors include Philosophy, Theology, History, Medieval and Byzantine Studies, Anthropology, Art History, and modern foreign languages; however, students have also minored in Music and completed the pre-medical course sequence. The minor in Secondary Education is also available to those who are interested in high-school teaching. The departmental undergraduate advisor assists in the selection and assembly of minor programs.
