Minor Requirements

Regular Minors

A student is not required to complete a minor. A minor consists of 20 to 26 credits in the area of concentration including all prerequisites and allied courses as determined by the department or program offering the minor.

A minimum grade point average of 2.00 is required for the courses in the minor. Transfer students must also attain a minimum grade point average of 2.00 for minor courses taken at St. Thomas.

The department has the right to specify how many courses in the minor field (and at what level) must be taken at St. Thomas.

A student may earn more than one minor.

Minors at other Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) Institutions

A student wishing to complete a minor offered at one of the ACTC schools (and not offered at St. Thomas), must file a petition with the Committee on Studies for approval. In the petition, the student should indicate his/her acceptance for the minor by the chair of the department at the other institution, and the list of courses that need to be completed.

Individualized Minors

A faculty adviser should be chosen for the minor. Individualized minors must be approved by the Committee on Studies.
