Minors, Concentrations & Programs
Students in the College of Engineering can elect one or more academic minors offered by departments within LS&A. Minors are intended to recognize the completion of a coherent sequence of courses in a particular academic area and require more careful selection of your non-engineering courses. They serve as recognition, via transcript notations, of the completion of a more in-depth course sequence.
