What is a minor?
An undergraduate minor at AUA is a coherent set of thematically related courses intended to broaden/complement a student’s learning and experience.
Minors are optional. Undergraduate students may complete a minor(s) if they choose to do so. However, there is no requirement to do so.
In case the completion of a minor requires additional credits and/or additional time at AUA, the relevant procedures and policies will apply. There may be financial repercussions to choosing a minor.
Criteria for completion of a minor
No more than three credits can be counted from the major credits toward the minor.
No more than nine credits counted towards the minor may also satisfy a student’s General Education requirements
At least 50% of courses counted within the minor must be taken at AUA.
