Academic Minors

Enhance your degree by adding an academic minor.

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.

Common Requirements for Completing a Minor

  • At least half the credits you earn within the minor must be upper level (numbered 300 or above) unless otherwise specified and must be earned through UMGC.
  • No grade may be lower than a C in the coursework for the minor.
  • Courses already applied toward other degree requirements (e.g. major or general education) may not be applied toward the minor.
  • Prerequisites apply for all courses.
