Unlike other universities, we won't limit your choices when it comes to minors. Our core curriculum allows—and even encourages—you to explore subjects outside your major and outside your college. So, say, if you wanted to study biology, you can also minor in business. Or, if you're studying political science, you can minor in writing or environmental studies.
