Draft of Proposed Changes to Catalog Description: ACADEMIC MINOR


A minor consists of no less than 15 and no more than 24 related credit hours in an approved program of study. The minor is a clearly defined area of study that is sufficiently distinct from a student’s academic major to qualify for recognition on the transcript. In no case may more than 6 credit hours of coursework included in a minor represent a required part of a related academic major or second minor. Students must attain a minimum 2.0 cumulative quality point average (QPA) in all courses required.

The Bachelor of Arts degree candidate must choose between a minor or second year foreign language proficiency. To earn a Mansfield University minor, students must complete at least 50% of the required minor course work from Mansfield University. Though not a requirement for other degrees, a minor can be used to enhance your academic experience and will appear on your permanent record. Forms for declaring an academic minor are available in the Registrar’s Office.
