Academic Minors

A minor is a program of study, with less depth than a major. It may be completed to complement, or as an addition to a major. A minor has a minimum of 15 credit hours (minimum of three (3) lower division and minimum of nine (9) upper division credit hours). The requirements and the curriculum for a minor are determined by the academic department faculty offering the minor with the appropriate approvals through the shared governance structure. 

Methodist College students electing a minor can meet with an advisor from participating faculty to help guide them in choosing courses to fulfill the requirements of the minor. A minor must be an elective choice - a student cannot be required to complete one as part of the requirements for a major. 

A maximum of six transfer credits can be applied toward an academic minor.

Students can obtain a minor in the following concentrations:

  • Arts & Humanities 
  • Mathematics and Science
  • Social and Behavioral Sciences
