Minors

A minor must contain 15 to 18 credits of coursework with at least nine (9) credits of upper-division coursework. Courses taken to satisfy Core Areas A1 through E may not be counted as coursework in the minor. Core Area F courses may be counted as coursework in the minor.

Students in all baccalaureate programs who wish to do so may add a minor to their major programs of study from the following list of minor programs. The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree programs require a minor. The courses to make up the minor should be planned with the major advisor, unless otherwise noted.

Minors and second minors may be declared as early as the freshman year but should always be declared as soon as possible so that students have adequate time to plan the completion of their minors. Minors may be declared by requesting a minor via the online Change of Major/Minor form. This online form is located on all students' My.GeorgiaSouthern account homepage. A student changing his/her major may also declare or change a minor by completing this online Change of Major/Minor form.

Within the 15 credits of course work presented for the required minor in the B.A. programs or the optional minor in any bachelor’s degree program, the student must have a minimum total institution GPA of 2.0, with no more than three credits of “D” work. A minimum of 9 of the 15 credits must be earned at Georgia Southern University. Credit hours earned from an approved Georgia Southern University study abroad program may be used to satisfy the residential credits required for the minor.

A maximum of three credits may be taken under the S/U grading system within any minor.
