The student-designed minor originates with a student’s interest in issues or questions that cross disciplinary lines.

Admission into the Minor

Proposals for the minor are developed by the student in consultation with faculty and/or New College Director. Proposals require a clearly defined rationale and a tentative set of courses (including one activity that clearly integrates the program of study).

The student-designed minor requires successful completion of the following 21 semester hours. Students pursuing a Self Design Minor are encouraged to take one New College course as part of their minor.

Upper-level Residency

A minimum of six hours of 300- or 400-level courses in the minor must be earned on this campus.

Additional Minor Requirements

Students are responsible for ensuring that they have met all University, College, major and minor requirements. However, each student must meet with an adviser in the major department for academic planning and to be approved for registration each semester. College advisers are also available for additional assistance with minor, College and University requirements.
