Choosing a minor is strongly encouraged even though it is optional. You may not take a major and minor in the same area and may not receive a dual minor. The number of credits required to complete an academic minor varies according to academic program. At least half the credits earned within the minor must be upper level (unless otherwise specified) and must be earned through UMGC.
No grade may be lower than C. Specific coursework is prescribed for each minor and is described below.
