University General Course Catalog 2018-2019

Undergraduate Minors


Each department offering an approved major, or any university interdisciplinary committee or board, may propose a minor for official program approval. A minor program requires students to complete at least 18 credits, including nine or more credits in upper-division courses.

A student must achieve a grade point average (GPA) of at least a 2.0 in the courses of a minor program of study to successfully complete a minor.  A department offering a minor may require a higher minimum GPA within the courses of the minor program of study and/or minimum grade requirement for individual courses of the minor for successful completion, but may not impose additional requirements such as a minimum university overall GPA higher than 2.0.

The program requirements for approved minors are specified in the college and department sections of this catalog. Students must complete a declaration of minor form available on the Records and Registration website at: http://www.unr.edu/academic-central/forms-and-policies/forms. The student’s minor is indicated on his/her official record when all graduation requirements are satisfied.
