Alliance University students who wish to study an area of interest in greater depth should consider pursuing a Minor. Minors only require 15 credits in a specific discipline and are designated on your transcript.
Why Should I Minor?
- Minors add depth to your studies – You may choose to complete a minor related to your major. Choosing a minor that complements your major can help you concentrate your studies in the underlying discipline. For example, if you are majoring in Communications and plan to enter the field of Journalism, Advertising or Scriptwriting, consider a minor in English to help strengthen your writing abilities. Or if you are majoring in Psychology or Sociology and want to better understand criminal behavior, consider a minor in Criminal Justice.
- Minors add breadth to your studies – You might choose to minor in an area that, combined with your major, gives you insight into an area you’d like to explore further in your career or in graduate or professional school. For example, if you are an English Major, consider a minor in History, Religion or Art History in order to further study the literature, cultures and histories or various peoples. Or, if you are a Ministry or Cross Cultural Studies major, consider a minor in Spanish in order to more effectively interact with Latin American groups.
- Minors examine an area of passion – You might choose to minor in a subject, which may or may not be related to your major, to continue your personal interest. For example, you may be a Psychology major, but you love museums and the arts, consider a minor in Art History. Or perhaps you are a Criminal Justice major with a life-long passion for computers, consider a minor in Computer Science.
- Minors are an alternative to double majoring – You really want to study both Philosophy and Religion, but you also want to graduate on time. Why not major in one area and minor in the other? Some minors are really like mini-majors where you will learn the fundamentals of the subject without the commitment and additional requirements of a major.
- Minors can help your career preparation – Declaring a minor highlights a diversity of learning and skills. It can therefore demonstrate to future employers that you are a broad thinker and have various interests. It also highlights that you can engage two areas of study, while also providing focus and depth.
What are the Requirements for a minor?
- Application for the minor must be made before the close of registration of the last semester before graduation.
- At least 15 credits must be accumulated in a discipline other than the student’s major. Nine (9) of these credits must be upper-level, 300 or above.
- A minimum grade point average of 2.00 must be earned in the minor.
- At least two courses in the minor must be taken at Nyack College.
- Some minors require that specific course work be taken and that a specific number of credits be earned.
- Core courses may not be used to fulfill minor requirements.
