College of Social and Behavioral Sciences Minors

Purpose

A minor is a coherent program of study which enables an undergraduate degree-seeking student to develop expertise in a second area of study. It may be interdisciplinary. A student must complete a “Change of Major” form to indicate his or her intent to pursue a minor. Students may transfer between 6 and 12 credit hours from another institution. Thus, between 9 and 15 credit hours, depending upon the specific minor, must be taken at Wilmington University in order for the student to be credited with a minor. Upon successful completion of the requirements, a notation is placed on the official transcript.

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences has minors in Army and Air Force military studies, and political science. The minors range from 16 to 19 credits and individual courses may require pre-requisites. Students wishing to pursue a minor in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences should contact the Student Academic Advising and Success Center.
